Josh Cohen, a young entrepreneur, came up with the idea of removing junk for a business at 21. After a conversation with a friend, who had earned $100 for hauling away a neighbor’s refrigerator, Josh realized this service was definitely needed.

In 2004, after returning from his studies in Austria, Josh set out with his homemade flyers and distributed them around the community, offering to haul away your items no longer needed. Soon his phone was ringing, and he quickly realized there was a demand for a reliable, professional, and, most importantly, eco-focused junk removal service.

Josh started hauling away items with his mother’s SUV and a trailer for bigger jobs. He then purchased a truck that helped him to expand his business. He serviced Fairfield County, Connecticut, then onto Westchester County, New York. He eventually replaced that truck with the unmistaken bright green dump trucks now recognized everywhere. In 2013, this successful business expanded and started franchises all over the county.

It is easy to understand our excitement when we announce The Junkluggers has joined the Adopt A Highway® program. With their sponsorship of 2 signs in Fairfield County, this company continues to focus on the community and protecting the environment.

Why The Junkluggers?

  • They carefully screen, train, and hire professionals to do the work. They are passionate about the environment and look to hire people with the same desire for a cleaner earth.
  • This business is unique in that it estimates the volume of what you would like removed from the home and how much it will fill up a truck. Their price estimate is guaranteed. You might pay less if the truck is not fully operational, but you will never pay more!

Main goal

  • The Junkluggers make great efforts to donate and recycle the items to be hauled away rather than adding them to landfills. Their main goal is to keep as much out of the landfill as possible. And, by 2020, their mission is to donate and recycle 100% of all items removed.

Other Services

  • Residential/Commercial Movers
  •  Packing/Unpacking Services
  • Donation Pickup Services

One man’s junk is another man’s treasure. The Junkluggers eco-friendly mission redistributed items collected, such as couches donated to homeless veterans, toys donated to children’s museums, and shoes donated to those without.
