It’s a company that helps you get rid of the clutter in your home just in time for spring cleaning; The Junkluggers of Greater Erie is an eco-friendly junk removal company.
Junkluggers is proving that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. With spring, many of us want a fresh start. Junkluggers aims to make that process easier.
Whether you are cleaning out your basement, the bathroom, or your board room, Junkluggers will help.
Erie Local James Kohler tells us, “I thought, ‘this is what we need to do to help my neighbor; she’s selling one of her properties and needs to be cleaned out’ and I thought, ‘this is perfect'”.
They take it all except for hazardous material.
Another factor that sets junk luggers apart is that they donate to local charities. They donate items that can be reused. Anything that can’t be donated or repurposed is carefully broken down and recycled if possible.
Co-Owner Rick Miles tells us, “We know that we’re going to a person’s home and we’re dealing with their things and we want to treat them with respect; take care of them, and when we get the items, we sort through them. We’re at the house for half-hour to an hour. “
Owners believe that the amount of household and commercial waste that winds up in landfills on a daily basis is astronomical.
President of Junkluggers, Julie Engle, tells us, “…let’s say that you have someone who is relocating, moving, or someone’s passed away; we will come in and take what you want to move out of the house.”
Junkluggers thinks that this is avoidable with the amount of love they have for this planet.
It’s a great way to sit, relax, and watch them lift the unwanted junk out of your life.
The owners brought the franchise to Erie in January 2019 which serves Erie, Crawford, and Chautauqua counties.
