Cleaning Up America: Junk King Documents Epic Environmental Road Trip

National Junk Removal Company Returns From Cross-Country Mission to Declutter 15 Cities

August 23, 2018 // // SAN FRANCISCO - Fifteen cities. Six weeks. Junk King's one goal -- Cleaning up America.

Fueled by its ecofriendly mantra to recycle, reuse and repurpose, the nation's leading junk removal company recently embarked on its first cross-country road trip to tidy up cities coast-to-coast.

Departing on Earth Day, April 22, 2018, Junk King's patriotic-branded Cleaning Up America truck left San Francisco to visit various homeowners, small businesses and nonprofit groups across the United States. Throughout the six-week journey, Junk King's team lent its services to help these groups declutter while raising awareness about recycling. Junk King's work during those six weeks involved no cost for the groups and individuals that participated.

"The Cleaning Up America trip was such an unforgettable and rewarding experience for everyone who was involved," said Michael Andreacchi, CEO of Junk King who personally kicked off the tour. "Having everyone band together was incredibly heartwarming, and I know our efforts truly made a difference in each city we visited. As a company, we're inspired to make this trip bigger and better than ever next time...but we also will continue to create meaningful relationships in our communities on a daily basis."

Making the environmental movement a brand-wide effort, the Cleaning Up America truck was driven and passed forward from one Junk King franchisee to the next in each local market. To capture the moments of generosity and gratitude, Junk King documented the entire journey by recording the visits and releasing city-themed episodes for the rest of America to see.

The cities on the Cleaning up America tour included:

  • San Francisco, California
  • Los Angeles, California
  • Orange County, California
  • Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Denver, Colorado
  • Des Moines, Iowa
