We are the 2nd largest and fastest growing junk removal service in North America. Our rapid growth is fueled by its recycling-based junk removal model and world class customer service. In 2012, the highest ranked customer service organization in North America! Our goal has always been to reinvent the sector by developing a technology driven business management franchise in a traditionally low-tech sector. We are a premier white collar business system in a large, fragmented blue collar industry.

Junk Works is a white-collar business management franchise in a blue-collar industry with company operations showing sustainable growth. We provide a full- service junk removal and recycling service. The junk removal / recycling industry is in its infancy and has a least a decade of growth ahead of it. We launched our franchise operations in October 2009 and in Canada in 2012, have awarded over 80 new franchises including two U.S. Master licenses, and two Canadian Master licenses. Our model is adaptable as an owner operator model (not working on truck), transitional model from another career, or straight ROI model with general manager in place running day to day.
