Sustainable Business Practices
What started as a one man private waste removal endeavor in 1989, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? has turned into a corporation with over 250 franchises across North America, Australia and the U.K. The system continues to expand with new franchises opening monthly. The Ann Arbor branch of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? incorporates many waste and energy reduction processes into the company practices. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? uses electronic documents and email to decrease paper waste. In addition to the reuse of folders, boxes, mugs, utensils, toner cartridges, and paper on a regular basis in the office, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? also recycles paper, cans, packaging materials, scrap metals, fluorescent lights, glass, wood debris, computers, cell phones, cardboard, plastic and yard waste found at the homes they collect waste from. They have found that by recycling, their amount of garbage has decreased substantially. In addition to actual recycling, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? also uses a variety of recycled materials, such as, copier paper, file folders, hand towels, brochure/flyer paper, toilet paper, garbage bags, cardboard boxes, and compost. Energy use is also reduced inside the office; through the use of fluorescent light bulbs, automatic sleep timers on computers, timers placed on external lights, temperature control measures, and routine maintenance performed on equipment to keep it running efficiently. New employees are introduced to the waste reduction program, and rewards are given for participation and the development of new ideas. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? also aids its customers in the proper and safe disposal of household toxics.
