Junk removal company serves Beaufort County

The Junkluggers of the Coastal Empire, an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional junk removal, has officially opened to serve Jasper and Beaufort counties and several Georgia counties.

Specializing in both residential and commercial clean-outs, Junkluggers accepts everything from furniture to construction debris, including office equipment, heavy machinery and appliances.

The company hauls away items people no longer want or need and strives to donate and recycle as much as possible with the goal of keeping items out of landfills. 

Junkluggers also provides a tax-deductible receipt for anything that they are able to donate on their customer’s behalf.

“We donate first, recycle next and avoid landfills as much as possible,” said Trevor Hess, owner and president of the local franchise. “We are very proud of our eco-friendly mission to protect the community we live in through donations and recycling by sorting everything we put on the truck for donations, recycling and disposal, with the landfill always being the last stop for any items removed.”

While keeping items out of the landfill is the company’s No. 1 goal, Hess and his wife, Misty, who is also his business partner, are also focused on the impact the company can make in the local community.

“We partner with a wide variety of local charities that help myriad causes,” Hess explained.
