Junk Bee Gone marks 5 years


Junk Bee Gone is celebrating its fifth anniversary.

“We were the first full service junk removal company in Knoxville,” owner Mike Such said of the Farragut business.

“We send in a two-man uniformed team; they provide all the labor and moving everything for people. So instead of having to take everything to the curb, we were the first in the area to open up and do that.


“That was a brand new concept in the area,” he added.

Junk Bee Gone offers a wide array of junk removal and demolition services: everything from driveway dumpsters and full-service junk removal to document shredding.

“The community has been great. They embraced us; they’ve been very good to us,” Such said.

“We try to give back — we support local football teams and a lot of sports. We try to give back to the community in every way we can and we certainly appreciate them,” he added.

Such’s company has grown to include new and expanded services over its first five years.

“We started out with one dumpster and box truck, and now we have five trucks and 20 dumpsters. It’s grown nicely,” Such said.

At customer request, Such added driveway dumpsters to his list of services.

“People wanted a chance to sort through the stuff themselves and didn’t necessarily have it all ready for us when we came,” Such said of the driveway dumpsters.

“That was a way for them to sort through and actually throw stuff out, for people who have the ability and desire to do that,” he added.

Driveway dumpsters also are popular with remodelers and for small-scale construction and roofing projects.

“Those dumpsters get used in almost every facet you can think of,” Such said.

Such also added document shredding and destruction services due to customer request.

“We take it to a secured facility, we send customers back a notarized certificate of destruction and that’s actually been a very growing part of our business,” Such said.

Junk Bee Gone’s document shredding process is HIPA certified, so it’s popular with physicians and dentists, as well as with business owners and citizens.

Very important to Such in all of his services is his impact on the environment.

“There is an endless supply of junk. We wanted to be as green as possible,” Such said.

“Our goal was to recycle as much as possible. So we donate to Mission of Hope all the reusable furniture and everything we can get. We donate clothing.

“Then we recycle paper — once it’s destroyed it goes back to a paper mill. And we recycle metals,” he added.

The final step in any junk removal process is “taking it to the dump,” Such said. Anything that can be recycled or donated, is. Nothing is re-sold.

“There’s no reason to fill up those landfills at this point. So many metals can be re-used right now. With the paper, there’s no reason to cut down more trees,” Such said.

Junk Bee Gone operates within a 60-mile radius of Knoxville, extending as far as Sevierville.

“But most of our business is right here in West Knoxville,” Such said.

Junk Bee Gone is fully licensed and insured, and is a member of Better Business Bureau.
