Who We Are
AnyJunk is a technology platform for man & van rubbish clearance. Voted one of the UK’s 100 most exciting, fast growth companies, shortlisted in the 2017 Technology Enterprise Awards and eCommerce Awards for Excellence, and winner of the 2018 Innovation & Excellence Award for Waste Disposal Services, we are the UK’s largest rubbish clearance company.
We were founded by Jason Mohr, a former investment banker, who quit the City to reinvent junk removal. Starting in 2004 from a single truck (Jason worked on it for the first 6 months), we have grown to undertake more than 1,500 clearances every week.
Along with man & van rubbish clearance, we also have a national skip hire business called Loveskips.
Originally we undertook collections with our own staff and vehicles. However, to improve our speed of response, capacity management and carbon footprint, in 2016 we stopped using our own fleet and became a technology platform instead. We now partner with local licensed man & van waste carriers all over the UK that undertake clearances on our behalf. Our platform provides them access to optional work according to their capacity and proximity, and allows us to closely monitor service levels, track where the waste is disposed, and keep customers updated in real time.
This unique model means our scalability, service capability and average miles per collection are dramatically better than traditional operators. We are using technology to leverage existing infrastructure efficiently – rather than adding trucks and congestion to the roads – and we’re helping local entrepreneurs (our waste carriers) grow and develop too.
Think of the spaghetti trail of man & van waste carriers and skip hire trucks inefficiently criss-crossing each other’s tracks every day as they collect bulky waste. Imagine all those collections funnelling through our platform, so that only the nearest operator collects the nearest job, daily routes are fully optimized, and trucks and crews don’t sit idle waiting for their next job. Consider how much cost, CO2 and inefficiency that would remove. ……. That’s what we’re going to make happen. Our vision is to reinvent rubbish clearance through scale, service and technology.
Our mission is to be the first choice for getting rid of stuff that’s too big for the bin based on affordability, ease of use, and social & environmental impact.
White Elephant Logo
We chose our logo because elephants are lovable, big guys that can lift stuff and because of the expression ‘white elephant stall’ – which is a local, socially responsible and cost effective way of getting rid of things you no longer want.
