We Make It Easy To Be Junk-Free!

Give us a call.

We’ll give you a free junk removal quote with one price that includes everything. For certain jobs, we may have to stop out and take a look - but there are no gimmicks, no surprises, no hidden fees. The only finger you’ll have to lift is the one that dials the phone!

Schedule your pickup.

We pride ourselves in being able to get to you fast. We can usually do the same day or the next day, but if you'd like to schedule further out that's fine too. Just let us know!

We show up on time and in uniform.

Our team aren't the stereotypical "junk guys." We show up when we say we will, neatly dressed and ready to work. We'll treat your home and your items as if they were our own! And if you decide you want us to haul away even more, no problem - our add-on rates are very reasonable.

We collect payment when the job is done.

Give us your card, hand us cash, or you can even write us a check if necessary. The price we quoted you will always be the price you pay at the end!

We’ll Make Your Junk Make A Difference

We take all of your stuff, and we figure out what to do with it. Depending on what it is and the condition it’s in, a number of different things may happen to the things we remove from your home.

We donate

Our first choice is to donate everything that is in donatable condition. We donate to Hope Gospel Mission, The Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, and any other organization that accepts donations. 

We recycle

Taking care of the planet is very important to us. That’s why we maintain relationships with the various places that can take recyclable items. All remaining items (or sometimes, parts of items) that can be recycled will get recycled.

UPDATE: We’ve thrown our last mattress in the landfill! Read more about our mattress recycling program.

We dispose

We hate having to do this, so it’s really the last option. Sometimes though, the donation centers don’t want something. And unfortunately, not everything can be recycled. If that’s the case, we’ll haul things off to the landfill.

We Give Back To The Community

Many of the things we haul away still have some good life left in them. For things that are likely to move quickly we’ll frequently turn around and list them on a local marketplace for an affordable price. Proceeds from those sales – 100% of them – go to a local nonprofit that helps people right here in our community through our “Bargains To Blessings” initiative.

Previously we’d helped “Power Of Perception” – a local organization that’s focused on providing leadership mentoring African American & biracial youth in the Chippewa Valley.

We’re currently helping Sojourner House in Eau Claire, a Catholic Charities homeless ministry. Sojourner House helps people rebuild their lives, and re-engage in the the greater community. We’re helping them by donating warm clothes, and providing packaged lunches. See all the info in our latest video, and if you’d like to partner with us in supporting Sojourner House or other worthy local organizations, please reach out – (715) 598-3677. We’d love to talk to you!

positive review If you need junk hauled away I highly recommend Kersten Family Junk Removal. I found myself with a porch full of garbage on a Saturday afternoon. DIY project took a turn and we had to clean the basement out. 🙁 I found the Kersten Family mentioned here on Next-door and through a Google search. It said they were open! After a quick call, they stopped by and the garbage was gone! It's the best money I've spent on the whole project! Thank you Kersten Family Junk Removal

Needed to get rid of a mattress and they were able to do that. Arrived exactly when they said they would and were very professional. I would definitely use their services again and will recommend them to others.

positive review Would recommend Kersten Family Junk Removal to anyone and everyone! I called them this morning to inquire about removing a broken down fridge and a few other miscellaneous items and within hours they were here to pick it up. Same day pickup! 😳😄
They were very friendly and communication throughout the day was great.
Very impressed with the service.
Thank you!

I can't say enough good things about the Kersten Family Junk Removal. They were non-judgemental within a very sad situation, and they went out of their way to even help us bag up garbage at the last minute when we weren't quite finished. Kind, easy to work with, just great folks.

Jason and his brother were incredible, they really helped me out with my move. I called them very last minute and they were still able to come that same day. He even hauled away WAY more than we’d originally planned on junking. Such a great price for doing a job I really didn’t want to do myself. Thank you Kersten Family, 10/10!

Great timing, affordable and super convenient! Would recommend 10/10!!! I just had a 4x8 trailer of trash built up over a few weeks of missing the curb and they took it away when I was trying to find a dump to haul it to the minimum fees were $70 plus for a load up to 2K lbs when I had maybe 200lbs. Kersten family junk removal negotiated their price for this load and worked with me! Very awesome!
