We take the protection of our planet pretty seriously here at Junk King. As the planet’s population grows, so does the amount of waste that ends up in a landfill. In 2018 the total generation of municipal solid waste was 292.4 million tons, about 4.9 pounds per person per day. That number makes us feel all sorts of things, but the main feeling that rises up is determination.
In 2005, Junk King started when two childhood friends opened a junk hauling and recycling business out of their garage. Since then the company has grown to 50+ franchises throughout the United States and Canada.
I write the press releases for Junk King hauling and recycling. That means I get an early look at what's important to the franchisees who open throughout this country.
The Denver Business Journal recently published an article called "Franchising Expected to Pick Up This Year." That's a bit of an understatement.
