How Big is the Junk Removal Industry? Statistics
The junk removal industry is incredibly lucrative.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the waste management and junk removal sector brings in over $10 billion annually in the United States alone, with a market value of over $1 trillion worldwide.
The junk removal industry is also highly competitive.
Since 2014, LoadUp has become one of the fastest-growing companies in the country – and the fastest growing in our industry.
With over 570% company growth every year and no signs of slowing down, we’re constantly beating our sales records and bringing in millions of dollars every year.
As you can tell, LoadUp is definitely earning a reputation among the heavyweights in the junk removal competition, and has steadily been carving out our own successful, unique path since the day we broke into the industry with just a truck and friends.
Why Our Competition Franchises and LoadUp Doesn’t
In 2014, LoadUp disrupted the junk removal game with a completely unique way of doing business that had never been seen in the industry before. By offering upfront pricing and online payments, our booking system replaced the on-site estimate.
Without on-site estimates there’s no need to franchise. By doing things differently, we’ve quickly became a front-runner among the competition, earning the status of a multi-million-dollar business in only three years.
Skip the onsite estimate for real paying jobs!
LoadUp is more attractive to customers than privately-owned junk removal companies and franchises because we don’t price our jobs based on on-site estimates. This alone drives more customers into our hands because they know they’re getting the best price. By offering online booking, high-quality support, and upfront quotes, customers can easily book junk removal services without needing to deal with the hassle of an on-site estimate.
Our way of doing business benefits drivers because you’re not wasting gas and time heading to junk jobs that don’t pan out. Only accept real jobs for higher weekly pay.
Be your own boss as an independent contractor!
LoadUp’s unique network of independent contractors has allowed us to become nationwide. By hiring motivated professionals to join our incomparable team of customer service, dispatch, sales and marketing, LoadUp has driven jobs – not leads – right into the hands of our Loaders.
LoadUp Stats: Industry Successes
With an average yearly growth rate of 570%, our company has skyrocketed in the past 6 years. From 2019-2023, we were honored to make the Inc. 500 and Inc. 5000 lists of the fastest-growing privately-owned companies in America, respectively.
LoadUp’s Growth Projections
LoadUp’s vision is to become the largest network of independent junk removal contractors in the world, which would open us to claim our share of the $1 trillion+ worldwide market value. Currently, we are diligently working on launching LoadUp in Canada as the first step of our worldwide journey.
In 2019, LoadUp generated $3 million from 30k pickups and on track to generate $10 million from 75k pickups in 2020 – that’s a $7 million increase in only one year!
Our goal is to increase our revenue to $100 million in the next five years. Currently, we are on target to bring in a minimum of $50 million, at the very least. At LoadUp, we are goal-driven and set high standards for ourselves and our team because we know we can make it happen!
Loader & Job Stats
As a Loader, you’ll have access to an average over 2,000 available jobs per week, nationwide. The number of jobs that we have taken has dramatically increased over the last few years, perfectly illustrating our growth as a company and the earning potential of our Loaders:

Junk Removal is Recession-Resistant
During times of economic hardship, people stop spending money on frivolous things. Luckily for you, junk removal isn’t frivolous. People initially pay for the convenience – and return because of the incredible service they received from our Loaders.
Here’s the thing. No matter what happens, people will always need junk removal services. Especially during times of economic recession, people don’t want to pay a pickup minimum, rent an entire dumpster, or deal with the hassle of on-site estimates.
Unlike other junk removal companies, LoadUp doesn’t require pickup minimums or on-site estimates. Customers choose us over others because of our mission “to provide exceptional service with honesty and transparency”. We’re a brand that customers can trust across the board, even during a recession.
During the most recent recession in 2020 brought about by the Coronavirus, LoadUp has seen no negative financial impact. In fact, COVID-19 has only driven more jobs into our hands, with people looking to dispose of high-touch surfaces in a no-contact environment. By offering discounted outdoor pickups, customers feel safe with us while also appreciating the value of our services versus that of our competitors.
LoadUp is different than most junk removal companies, in that we work to promote sustainability. This means that we attempt to find alternative disposal methods to the landfill, and encourage drivers with higher payouts for certain donations or recycling.
Donating salvageable items to local charities isn’t only free to you, but it’s a way to have a positive impact on your local community. You keep more money in your pocket by avoiding dump fees, and your donations help someone in need.
Recycling junk is often free or less expensive than hauling junk to the dump. Recycling is a more lucrative disposal method for you when you don’t have to pay dump fees, and it has a positive impact on the environment. That’s a huge selling point to many of our environmentally-conscious customers.
Jobs vs. Leads
LoadUp is truly unique in our industry. Unlike other junk removal companies, we price and receive payment for our junk removal services upfront.
So what does this mean for you? It means that we’re offering you actual jobs – not leads. You aren’t required to sell anything, because the sale has already been made! It’s just up to you to claim it, execute, and make that paper.
Once a customer schedules their service, payment is collected and the job becomes available for you to claim. Jobs are easily viewed and claimed in our Driver app.
When you claim a job, you’ll be able to view the difficulty of the job as well as how much of a payout you can expect. Accepting a job is entirely your decision. The more jobs you claim, the higher your weekly payout will be.
