How Did Bye Junk Get Started?

Bye Junk was started by Matt Herman in 2018 with a passion to remove junk. With over 8 years of junk removal experience, Matt has seen most everything. He has been in the industry since 2010 and he and his team have the knowledge and ability to know how to properly remove and dispose of pretty much anything.  With so many junk removal companies out there, how did they expect to grow? By focusing on a few aspects in the industry such as top-notch professionalism, customer service, guaranteeing low prices and making sure to surpass the standard image of a junk removal company in the Bay Area.

What We Do With Your Junk

Bye Junk is on a mission to keep junk out of landfills. Any items we remove that are in re-usable condition will be diverted from the dump. All metal, wood, yard waste, paper, and cardboard items (just to name a few) are recycled instead of junked. We can even recycle items such as appliances and old boxsprings! We don’t just pick up your items and go straight to the landfill. It is amazing what some company’s take to the dumps. Also, we do not just throw and break items into our trucks. Your job does not end when we leave, that is just the first half of the Bye Junk process.

What is our Mission?

Focus on the four R’s of junk removal

Remove Your Unwanted Items

Recycle to Save Landfills

Reuse Junk Through Giving

Reduce Our Impact on Community

More Than Your Average Junk Removal

Any company can claim to be “Green” and being green is important, but we are looking at the big picture. Recycling is a standard process to us, we make sure that anything we remove that can be recycled, is recycled or if it is still useful we donate it.  This helps keep the landfills from overflowing and gives you peace of mind when you use our service that you are doing what is best for the environment. We recycle/re-use/donate over half of the junk from all the jobs we do.

From single item loads to 20+ truckloads, we do it all. If you are looking for an after-hours appointment please contact us. When you use Bye Junk whatever you need to be removed will be done so in a fast, friendly, professional manner and that we strive to treat every customer as if they were a  family member.

Is there anything you cannot take?

We can take pretty much anything. We cannot take hazardous paint/chemicals and we cannot take anything that can be explosive or illegal. Also, we must be able to lift it into our truck. We cannot take light bulbs, tubes, and household batteries.

Is there anything I can do to make my job less expensive?

Jobs where the items are located in a spot with easy access are cheaper then jobs where the items are scattered, require a long walking distance to our parked truck and/or up stairs. Jobs where items are located in a garage or driveway are on average the cheapest. Also we base our pricing on volume so breaking down junked items such as desks/boxes/etc. reduce volume and price.

I just have a few items. Can I get a quote over the phone?

Yes. For single/few furniture items we can give a roundabout price over the phone but please note it may change upon arrival.

We will tell you the final price before beginning the job and will never add charges once a quote is finalized.
