About Rubbish Works
More from Rubbish Works
Who We Are
Rubbish Works provides residential and commercial customers with a professional, eco-friendly approach to junk removal, hauling and recycling, and dumpster rental services. We remove items such as furniture, fixtures, appliances, electronics, construction/remodel cleanup and more. The $10+ billion junk removal industry is on the rise as homeowners are staying in more and embracing a simpler, clutter-free environment. Rubbish Works offers prospective business owners the opportunity to fill this demand with the backing of Premium Service Brands, an established parent company with over 200 franchisees in its network of home services brands.

Once franchisees are in operation, they can leverage localized marketing strategies, proprietary business management software, preferred vendor savings and regular one-on-one coaching from brand experts. A centralized, full-service contact center can answer calls from potential customers, sell the service, and book appointments, so that franchise owners can focus on managing their business.

How Rubbish Works Stands Out
Rubbish Works stands out by providing customers with upfront pricing, convenient scheduling, courteous and friendly crews and same-day service. The brand also offers eco-friendly and sustainable waste disposal, a service that is increasingly relevant to homeowners.
For owners, the business model is simple. No physical location is required, so franchise owners can work from home. There is no inventory to manage, and equipment can be leased to start. Additional trucks, dumpsters, and other hauling equipment only increases as the business scales.
As a newer, emerging brand, potential franchisees have their choice of location, with wide-open market availability.
