Stepping Out of Our Comfort Zone to Remove Junk and Debris in Scranton, PA

There is no limit to what we find we can do for our clients!

Early last week, one of our clients called and asked if we removed plaster, which we do. Upon laying eyes on the plaster during the estimate, we came to find out it was a whole wall. Of course, with junk removal, there is occasionally room for light demo and tear down.

I informed our client that this project is a little outside our realm of work, but that I will research the ‘how” and figure out if its obtainable. I spent the weekend doing just that (YouTube for the win).

On Monday, we put our research to the test. Our team was able to successfully cut the wall into thirds to allow for a safe removal of the wall. As you can see in the pictures, it was no small feat.

To get off the topic of junk for a second, if you’re reading this, I challenge you to do something out of your comfort zone today. Talk to someone (or something) that you normally wouldn’t, do something above and beyond even for your awesome self, or study a topic that would have previously intimidated you. If you know me (Dustin) at all, you’ll know my lack of ability to operate one of these power tools. Although I didn’t personally cut the wall, I am confident now that I can in the future personally, and that my team and I can do so on the professional level. Don’t be scared, you either succeed or you learn.

Basement Cleanup in Scranton to Start 2020!!!



At one point or another, each property will undergo renovations. Tearing down walls, adding doors, windows, kitchen demo, the list goes on. The end result is (hopefully) the desired upgrade, but what about the scraps? The boxes of the new floor, the wood trimmings that were not needed, where do they go? Good News! Junken Monkeys Hauling company removes these materials!

Our all inclusive service, which includes all the work, allows you to pile up the debris and allows us to can it up and take it away! Speaking to our clients, this has been found to be the easiest means of doing “DIY” renovations.

We use different techniques in the removal of the debris. Some of our favorite tools include shovels, tarps, garbage cans, gloves, and of course a broom for such removals. Although we are not a cleaning company, we do our best to sweep up once the “bigger stuff” is picked up and removed.

Although we also are not a demolition team, we do know some companies that we highly recommend and can definitely point you in the right direction! We are always here to help you out, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask.

Have you been renovating your property? What were your techniques in keeping everything organized? Comment below and let us know!

Free Exercise Removal Month!

Huge Announcement!!

Each month, we will be announcing an “item of the month” in which we will be DEEPLY discounting a specific item or type of item during a month that it makes sense and that our data shows was a popular pick up item during that month last year.

This month is “FREE EXERCISE EQUIPMENT PICK UP”. We chose exercise equipment due to last December having multiple home gym items removed for clients- as well as allowing our clients the ability to make space for those New Year’s Resolution!!

We are here to help you! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to comment or message!!


Holiday Season is HERE!!!


Tis the season! As the cold and snowy weather rolls in, we politely ask that you bear with us. Sometimes even the most confirmed of appointments we can not make due to the weather. Our team’s safety, and your safety is our #1 priority.

What we CAN do:

From December to March we will begin booking appointments with 2 dates, in the event that weather prevents us from arriving for our initial appointment. We are confident that this will help prevent any issues with all parties scheduling.

Ready to book an appointment? Maybe just an estimate? Contact us today!
