Josh Cohen, a young entrepreneur who came up with the idea of removing junk for a business at the age of 21. After a conversation with a friend, who had earned $100 for hauling away a neighbor’s refrigerator, Josh realized there was definitely a need for this service.
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 an 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 the Fairfield County, Connecticut then onto Westchester County, New York. He eventually replaced that truck with the unmistaken bright green dump trucks which are now recognized everywhere. In 2013, this successful business was able to expand and start 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 the Fairfield County, this company continues to focus on the community and protecting the environment.
