Cleaning Up America: Junk King Embarks on Epic Environmental Road Trip

Cleaning Up America: Junk King Embarks on Epic Environmental Road Trip

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

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 is embarking 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 is leaving San Francisco to visit various homeowners, small businesses and nonprofit groups across the United States. Throughout the six-week journey, Junk King’s team is lending its services to help these groups declutter while raising awareness about recycling. Junk King’s work these 6-weeks will involve no cost for the groups and individuals that participate.

“Cleaning Up America is by far the larges, longest running and most exciting giveback initiative we have put together yet,” said Michael Andreacchi, CEO of Junk King who personally kicks off the tour on April 20. “The process of clearing out is liberating and necessary, and its heartbreaking to know not everyone has the manpower or resources to haul everything away or maintain a clean space. That’s why we’re inspired to make this trip—to provide some relief to folks all over the States, hear their story and make a meaningful difference in their lives.”

Making the environmental movement a brand-wide effort, the Cleaning Up America truck will be 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 will be documenting the entire journey by recording the visits and later releasing city-themed episodes for the rest of America to see.

The cities on the Cleaning up America tour include:

  • Peninsula, California
  • Los Angeles, California
  • Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Denver, Colorado
  • Des Moines, Iowa
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • Grand Rapids, Michigan
  • Cincinnati, Ohio
  • Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • New York City, New York
  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • Baltimore, Maryland
  • Washington D.C, Virginia

As part of the brand’s year-round commitment to being environmentally conscious, any items collected by Junk King will be taken to the nearest warehouse, where a team will facilitate managing and sorting of the materials. In fact, sixty percent of the junk collected from jobs is recycled, rather than being dropped at landfills. And through partnerships with local nonprofits and community organizations, the remaining items are donated and repurposed to benefit residents throughout United States.
