Core Value – Environmental Stewardship

We call ourselves the “greenest junk removal company” in the DC area, period.  It may be a bold claim at its surface, but everyone at 123JUNK stands behind that claim without any hesitation.  The idea is to minimize our footprint on the environment and continually improve our operations so that we’re not wasting anything. We dedicate ourselves daily to protecting and improving the environment in which we all live and work.

Our Donate, Recylce, Dispose Process

It’s right there in our name, 123JUNK.  Our three-step process isn’t drastically different than the processes that a lot of our competitors use, but it has one distinguishing characteristic—it’s in writing.  We have articulated and put to paper our specific process so that everyone in the organization clearly understands that dumping is a last resort.  It’s the refinement of that process that really sets us apart.

Reuse and Staying Hyper-local 

Without a doubt, 123JUNK’s charity network is unmatched in the DC area.  Our outlets for donation and reallocation of usable goods are our greatest resources when it comes to responsible disposal of the items we haul. 

A great deal of time and effort is poured into establishing and maintaining relationships with local charities and non-profits so that we understand where, when, and how to place functional items into the hands of people who can use them.


The concept of logistics is often lost in a conversation about being green.  It might be because logistics make sense financially, too.  Just because it’s a money-saver, though, doesn’t mean it can’t also help us do our part to preserve the environment.

In reality, the single most effective tool we have to reduce our impact on the environment is our efficiency.  We map out and streamline routes, lighten our loads at recycling and charity drop-off points, and drive at posted speed limits. 

We don’t just do these things to help our bottom line. We run a tight ship because we understand that “being green” is about more than buying biodegradable products and putting out the recycling.  It’s a way of thinking, and it’s the surest route toward a sustainable future for our lives and businesses alike.
