Junk Bee Gone marks four years


Mike Such, owner of Junk Bee Gone, is celebrating the business’s fourth anniversary this week.

“We started Junk Bee Gone to fill a niche in the marketplace, something a lot of other people weren’t doing,” Such said.

“We were the first full-service junk removal company to open in the Knoxville area,” he added.

The company started out with one truck, and has since expanded to four trucks and 16 driveway dumpsters.

“The community has been very supportive of the new service that we had … our services have increased,” Such said.

The business still provides full service junk removal, but also aids in self-service junk removal, largely through its driveway dumpsters, which the company drops off for consumers and picks up once full.

“We do paper shredding and document destruction, and now we also, from a recycling effort, we recycle paper, plastic, metals and we just started recycling car batteries,” Such said.


One of his customers’ most common questions, according to Such, is what happens to the items Junk Bee Gone collects.

“We try to make sure that, the items we take, we do the right things with,” Such said. The business recycles what it can, donates to Mission of Hope, and the rest goes to landfills.

“We donated anywhere from 30 to 35 truckloads of furniture and other items to Mission of Hope last year,” Such said.

Further expansion is in the works for Junk Bee Gone, Such said, perhaps to new markets.

Such said opening the business was a family affair. Wife, Tracy, helped think of the business’s name, and Such’s daughters helped decide on his iconic bee logo.

“Once we came up with the name, we wanted it to be a happy bee that everyone would look at and smile at, so they helped us come up with the bee that is the actual logo,” Such said.

“Our goal is customer satisfaction and just being the best at what we’re at,” he added.
