Our history
When our Founder and CEO Brian Scudamore was 18 he invested $700 in an old pickup truck and founded the Rubbish Boys. Ten years later, Scudamore had changed the name of his Vancouver-based company to 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, secured the 1-800 phone number and began franchising the business.

Most recently in February 2008, Scudamore was named the International Franchise Association's Entrepreneur of the Year and joined the ranks of Frederick DeLuca of Subway and Anthony DeSio of Mail Boxes Etc., both previous winners. This prestigious award and countless others demonstrate that 1-800-GOT-JUNK? is the best system available in the franchise service industry today.
