Junk Haulers Across Tri-State Expand Service After Sandy

1-800-GOT-CHARITY? Popular Junk Company Lends a Hand in Community.

New Jersey (PRWEB) November 08, 2012 - The clean-up calls in the wake of last week’s super storm have been coming in surges of their own; however, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? crews throughout the Tri-States region are finding time to support in additional ways. With a far-reaching fleet of trucks and people-power, the world’s largest junk removal company is stepping in to help transfer donations and deliver supplies to those hardest hit by the storm.

New Jersey Northeast franchise partner, Drew Trautman says he’s been approached for support in a number of upcoming supply drives.

“We are collecting supplies from various community centers, and either storing them temporarily or driving them straight to places like the Jersey shore, and we’re prepared to keep going until everybody gets what they need,” explained Trautman.

1-800-GOT-JUNK? is also collecting donation items and delivering them to some of the hardest hit areas. The company’s Long Island franchises have banded together and are traveling to neighborhoods that still don’t have power and helping out in any way they can.

The junk haulers still have their day jobs and that is keeping their schedules packed from early morning until late at night. With most of the clean-up a salvage, rather than a junk pick-up, the majority of their loads are having to go to the landfill. The company’s regular recycling efforts – in excess of 60% - are in effect wherever possible.
