Some Extra Incentive

At 123JUNK, you probably know by now that donation is a major point of emphasis. It is, after all, the “1,” in our three-step process. We encourage our truck crew to donate as much as they possibly can after removing the items from our clients’ homes. In many cases, the donation component of our process is what made a client decide to choose us over a competitor. We appreciate and value that choice, and we treat our commitment to serving the local community with great respect. Playing a role in prolonging the lifecycle of the items we collect is rewarding for us, and it undeniably enriches the experience of working at 123JUNK.

This month, our truck crew has more at stake than the satisfaction of knowing they helped to keep a table out of the landfill, or that they played a role in furnishing the home of a family that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford a living room set. Joe (pictured above), who many of our clients probably know from his unforgettable personality, has issued a challenge to his fellow Junkmen. If each of our Truck Foremen are able to donate from a certain number of jobs on which they’ve worked, Joe has promised to allow them to shave his head bald! With a head of hair like his, needless to say this is quite a gamble on his part. He just feels so strongly about the 123JUNK pledge to turn “junk” into opportunity that he is willing to risk his hair for the cause! We are proud of Joe and his call to action for his co-workers.

Habitat Resore Drop

Habitat ReStore

In March 2010, 123JUNK partnered with the Northern Virginia affiliate of Habitat for Humanity. Since then, we’ve been telling everyone we can about our partnership.
