Who We Are
Voted one of the UK’s 100 most exciting, fast growth companies of 2016, AnyJunk is the largest man & van rubbish clearance company in the UK.
We were founded by Jason Mohr, a former investment banker, who quit the City in 2004 to reinvent rubbish clearance through service, responsible disposal and scale. Starting from a single truck (Jason worked on it for the first 6 months), we have grown steadily and today undertake more than 6,000 clearances every month.
As well as serving householders and offices directly, we provide regional and national waste collection solutions to some of the country’s largest home improvement retailers, landlords, insurance companies, and contractors. On average 92% of the waste we collect avoids landfill.
Along with man & van rubbish clearance, we have a national skip hire business called Loveskips.
Our operating model is similar to Uber, the on-demand taxi platform, but instead of moving people, we move junk. Historically we undertook all the clearances with our own staff and vehicles. However, in 2015 we transformed into a technology platform business to improve our speed of response, increase our scalability, and reduce collection miles per job.
We now have a national network of independent waste carriers (our ‘Service Partners‘) who connect to us using an App. We offer jobs out to the network via the App as we receive them from our customers. Jobs are accepted by the nearest Service Partner with spare capacity. Our App connects us with our Service Partners as they undertake the jobs, so we can closely monitor service levels, track where the junk is going, and keep customers updated in real time.
Vision & Mission
Our Vision is to “Clean Up Rubbish Clearance” by making it as green, low cost and easy to use as possible. Our short term Mission is to be able “to collect junk in any UK city within 1 hour of request”.
Core Values & White Elephant Logo
Whatever we do, we always aim to stay true to our five Core Values:
- Happy teams make happy customers
- Open & Honest – the opposite of a faceless corporate
- Responsible & Safe – in how we operate and how we dispose of waste
- Service to proud of – every job and every day
- Innovating & improving – it should always feel we are getting better
The more eagle eyed of you will note that combining the first letter of each core value spells ‘HORSI’ which is about as close to an elephant as we can get!
Which brings us nicely to the white elephant in our logo. We chose it because of the expression ‘white elephant stall’ – which is a simple but very cost effective way of getting rid of the things you no longer want. Just like us 🙂
