123 Junk is the third-largest junk removal company in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The company was founded in 2008 by Collin Wheeler at the age of 23.


The company, based in Chantilly, Virginia, has 5 trucks and 8 employees. They have served over 2,000 companies and maintain partnerships with Habitat for Humanity, Goodwill, The Closet of the Greater Herndon Area, and the Reston Fish Incorporation.


123 Junk donates or recycles roughly half the items it collects.[1] Wheeler's company determines which pieces of "junk" are in good condition and takes them to local charities. Reciprocally, customers are provided with receipts so they can claim tax deductions.[2] More recently, 123 Junk has formed a philanthropic recycling operation on a local landfill, minimizing waste and keeping with the environmental trend in a low-cost, low-effort manner.
