The holiday season is a time for gathering with loved ones and spending quality time with friends and family. It is also a time to reflect, celebrate, and give back. As a local small business, The Junk Trunk aims to give back to the community through donating furniture, household items, and appliances that we pick up. Our partnership with Habitat for Humanity Denver ReStore and other local charities and non-profits allow us to divert items from the landfill and give back to our community.

Any productive movement starts with quality people, and our team is no exception. We proudly partner with organizations within the greater Denver community to employ members of sober living communities, in addition to providing employment opportunities for those who have recently come out of incarceration. Approximately “21.2 million Americans have a substance use disorder”(1). The Junk Trunk partners with Step Denver to help hard-working men tackle addiction head-on.

According to the Colorado Department of Corrections, “nearly half of offenders who are released return to prison within three years of committing new crimes.”(2) The Junk Trunk is also active in helping curb recidivism rates, and people commonly ask, ‘how can we improve our community and keep it safe?’ The Junk Trunk understands that access to employment, housing, and other necessary resources to thrive in a community are critical — we hope to not only be a source of employment, but also advocates in helping men and women get their lives back on track.

The Junk Trunk aims to create a workplace where individuals can showcase their full story, and not be judged for the partial story of a life. The lives of our team members are stories not of a single issue or regrettable circumstance, but ones at the complex and dynamic intersection of restoration, purpose, and triumph.

Our team is what sets apart The Junk Trunk from any other junk removal company. They are friendly, well-trained, and trustworthy workers who provide excellent customer service on every job. No job is too big or too small for our expert crews. Learn more about our story by joining the ‘Donate-it’ club and get to know our two/three-person crews who help you remove your unwanted items.
