What Do Junk Removal Companies Take?

Jun 21, 2022

It’s common for customers to assume that a professional junk removal company will take anything. However, it’s important to be aware of what we can and cannot take, since some items have very specific disposal guidelines to protect the environment and people. Hazardous waste is a common problem, and it’s not something our junk removal team handles. However, we take plenty of common household items, making us one of your biggest allies in clearing out the clutter. Below, you’ll see what 1st Class Junk Removal accepts.


For homeowners, furniture can be very troublesome to remove, especially when they’re located in the attic or basement. Hauling heavy items up or down a staircase is no simple feat. Before you risk throwing out your back, call our junk removal professionals! We bring the right equipment to effortlessly remove the furniture. As a result, you’ll open up space to use more effectively. 

Household Items

Have you been dreaming of relocating or renovating your home, only to realize you have a lot of stuff to get rid of beforehand? We take all kinds of common household items: toys, boxes, clothing racks and lamps, just to name a few. Rest assured that we’re ready to assist you no matter how big or small your project is.  

Office Furniture and Supplies

As a junk hauling company that serves businesses, we are well-versed in handling commercial needs. Whether you’re planning an office renovation or are moving locations, we can help you take out the old in no time. We work efficiently to quickly remove your stuff, which may include desks, office chairs, filing cabinets and other bulky furniture. 

What We Can’t Take

While we can take a wide variety of items and furniture, there are certain items that we do not have the equipment to handle. Our team’s safety is one of our highest priorities. We do not accept paint cans, motor oil, anything with pesticides, asbestos and other harmful materials, since these items need to be carefully processed to avoid harming the environment and other people. If you have any doubts about whether we accept an item, let our team know. We’re more than happy to provide the information you need.   

What Happens to My Stuff?

Considering all of the items that our junk removal company can take, you may be wondering what happens to yur stuff following the cleanout. We are committed to keeping the environment clean. We do everything we can to recycle your stuff whenever possible. Rest assured that we donate and recycle whenever we can: that way, your items can have a second chance. As a result, we help keep trash out of the landfill, which has positive effects on our local community. The process is entirely handled by our professionals, meaning you don’t have to go out of your way to dispose your items.
