Environmentally Friendly Junk Removal Service, Junkluggers of the Coastal Empire, Opens for Business

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

The Junkluggers of the Coastal Empire announces the environmentally friendly and caring alternative to traditional junk removal has officially opened to serve Chatham, Effingham, Bryan and Liberty counties in coastal Ga., and Jasper and Beaufort counties in S.C. Specializing in both residential and commercial clean-outs, Junkluggers accepts everything from furniture to construction debris, including office equipment, heavy machinery and appliances.

The company hauls away items people no longer want or need and strives to donate and recycle as much as possible with the goal of keeping items out of landfills. Junkluggers is also a caring alternative to traditional junk removal by enhancing lives through donations and returns a tax-deductible receipt for anything that they are able to donate on their customer’s behalf.

“We donate first, recycle next and avoid landfills as much as possible," said Trevor Hess, owner and president of the local franchise. “We are very proud of our eco-friendly mission to protect the community we live in through donations and recycling by sorting everything we put on the truck for donations, recycling, and disposal, with the landfill always being the last stop for any items removed.”

While keeping items out of the landfill is the company’s number one goal, Hess and his wife, Misty, who is also his business partner, are also focused on the impact the company can make in the local community.

“We partner with a wide variety of local charities that help a myriad of causes,” Hess explained. “From assisting those with special needs to protecting the local pet population, to helping formerly homeless veterans furnish their new apartments, we are extremely proud of the good we are able to do right in our own backyard.”

Junkluggers is committed to presenting a donation each month to a local charity. During October, the company has pledged support for Savannah’s Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Event, Savannah Bicycle Campaign’s Midnight Garden Ride and the Savannah Jaycees’ 75th Diamond Anniversary Gala. In November, Junkluggers will be assisting Benedictine Military School with its annual holiday food collection campaign. They are also developing partnerships with other local causes and charities.

Junkluggers also plans to announce the opening of its Second Chance Store early next year. This up-cycling retail facility will offer gently used furniture to the public at deeply discounted prices, as well as repaired items that otherwise would have been destined for the landfill. Proceeds will help benefit the Fisher House Foundation, which provides free housing for military and veterans’ families while their loved one is receiving treatment at military or VA medical centers.
