Who We Are

Back in 2007, long time friends and business partners Richard Symes and Ian Santangelo decided that we were going to create businesses that would help our communities live green.  We started an environmentally friendly cleaning service called ClenzPhilly.  By delivering accountability, quality control and premier customer service, ClenzPhilly is one of the fastest growing and reliable cleaning services in Philadelphia.  Immediately following its conception, we partnered up with a manufacturer of a revolutionary non-toxic, biodegradable and odorless cleaning product line.  We branded this product M2O Magic Water and use it exclusively in our service.  The formula is one of the most effective and versatile green cleaning products on the market. 

The Rise of Junk Heroes

Our most recent venture is the addition of Junk Heroes.  After seeing the need for a professional, reliable junk removal service in and around the city of Philadelphia, we founded Junk Heroes.  We are continuing our reputation for premier customer service and professional accountability and helping the city of Philadelphia with all of its junk removal needs.  The core values of the company are Donate, Recycle and Reuse which are consistent with all of our services and products.  For us, it's all about living green.  By always practicing environmentally-friendly disposal policies, Junk Heroes are avoiding landfills and helping save the planet...one haul at a time!

Our Core Values

The core values of our company are to Donate, Recycle, and Reuse. Junk Heroes uses every method possible to streamline your waste into alternative sources. Once we have separated, sorted, and donated everything we possibly can, the remaining debris is then taken to a recycling plant where it is broken down and re-manufactured into new material. Our Heroes always do everything in their power to avoid the dreaded "landfill of doom!"

Here's how it works:


Junk Heroes is affiliated with several local charity groups including The Salvation Army, Goodwill, The Arc of Camden and many other second hand stores. When they see our Junk Mobiles rolling up they know it's time to open the doors. Our Heroes never come empty handed. Thanks to our Hometown Heroes program we are able to donate countless items to help smaller businesses and individuals in our community that need assistance. We donate everything from computers, appliances, supplies, furniture, clothes and more!

Recyclable Items

Recycling is the most important feature of the junk removal business. If done properly, it can help reduce the amount of debris taken to local landfills by over 60%. We make it a top priority to recycle properly because, let's face it, if you're not part of the solution, then you're part of the problem. Due to modern recycling technology, we are able to reprocess an incredible amount of material that was not previously possible.
List of recyclables include:

  • Plastics
  • paper
  • glass
  • metal
  • wood
  • rubber
  • yard debris
  • electronics
  • household goods
  • construction debris
  • and lots more
Junk Heroes can find a way to recycle just about anything you have, which is why we are always saving the planet...one haul at a time.

The concept of reusing goes hand in hand with our Hometown Hero program. Every item that is donated is essentially reused by another member of our community. Whether it is a business or a residence, we make sure that every item possible finds a new use. Remember, it's only considered junk if YOU don't want it. One person's trash is another person's treasure. We even let our Heroes bring stuff home to their families if they feel that they can get use out of it. The way we see it, as long as someone is able to find value in an item and prevent it from otherwise ending up in the landfill, then we've done our job.
