Great Junk Removal – Locally Owned


Chicago is one of the greatest cities in the world and Great Junk Removal is proud to call it home. For all the years we’ve been in business, and we’re a Chicago-based, family-owned enterprise, we’ve done all we could to help the good people of this city keep it clear of clutter, junk, and debris. And, we’ve done it all with an eye toward ensuring nothing ends up in a landfill if at all possible. We’ll go to any lengths to see that our beloved Second City stays beautiful and environmentally sound for years to come.

When we first started, it was normal for junk haulers to fill up a truck with anything and everything they could carry, and take it all to the nearest landfill to dump it – no matter what toxic items were included. This kind of negligence is why we feel such a responsibility to make sure Chicagoans have a green alternative to the fly-by-night polluters and the 1-800-Not-Our-City companies who just don’t care.


Great Junk Removal – Who We Hire


At Great Junk Removal, we feel an obligation to our employees just as we do to our customers. Each of the people we employ is treated as a member of the Great Junk family, and given all the tools and training to succeed. We have all the licensing and insurance, including worker’s compensation, to guarantee you, your property, and our teams are protected at all times. This is just one more way Great Junk Removal is different than the majority of junk haulers out there. We care about doing the job right and ensuring the safety of people and property at all times.

When we bring on a new employee, and several times a year for active employees, we put them through a rigorous training program designed to give them proper technique for lifting and loading, and an in-depth view into Great Junk Removal’s philosophy of customer service. Our hope is that each person can connect with our mission and our motives, so that when they are on the job all that we hold dear is kept firmly in focus. This training has worked well for us over the years, and we’re sure you’ll see it too whenever we’re on your property.

  • Proper lifting & loading techniques.
  • Safe loading & operation of equipment.
