Business Profile: Family-run Affordable Junk Removal takes stress out of clean-outs

by | Feb 22, 2024 | Business, Featured

Affordable Junk Removal

Affordable Junk Removal is a family-owned and operated business that started in 2005.

Whether it’s one old fridge in the garage or an entire home of unwanted goods, the team at Affordable Junk Removal offers a cost-efficient, stress-free approach to waste management. “You don’t lift a finger,” says owner Jason Schadler, who started the company along with his wife, Christine, in 2005.

The business offers same-day service for both residential and commercial clients across eastern and central Massachusetts and northern Rhode Island. In addition to junk removal, the company rents 15-yard dumpsters.

As a family-owned and operated company, Affordable Junk Removal has lower overhead costs and is more accessible than national competitors. “I answer my phone 24 hours a day,” he says. “I was on vacation in Italy and Portugal, and I was still answering my phone on the beach. When you call us, you get me — not an automated machine!”

Schadler and his team have handled it all. They’ve dismantled above-ground pools, hauled away hot tubs, taken down old fencing and stripped away worn carpeting. They’ll come for a single item, or they’ll clean out an entire house. And they can take almost anything. They can’t accept hazardous materials, brush, dirt or concrete, but everything else is fair game for them to take away.

Schadler says the company has an environmentally friendly approach to disposal in which it recycles and donates items whenever possible. Only after trying to repurpose items do they end up at the transfer station.

During the early days of the business, Schadler provided junk removal on nights and weekends when he wasn’t busy working at a machine shop. Eventually, the business grew into a full-time endeavor, and the Schadlers invested back into the company with new equipment and techniques. “We are now a staff of 10 with eight trucks,” Schadler notes.

Schadler says his wife, Christine, “was equally as involved” in getting the business off the ground. “She handled the back end while I did the heavy lifting, all while she was working at EMC,” he says. “Fast forward 19 years, and we both work full-time managing the company as well as owning and managing The Corner Market in Holliston.”

In addition to delivering an in-demand service to the community, Schadler is appreciative that Affordable Junk Removal has helped provide a work-life balance that suits his family. “It allows me to be able to do what I like doing and spend time with my kids,” he says. “I’m home to see my babies play softball and do all that stuff. We are also able to give back to the communities we serve.”

The Schadler family lives in Milford, but they have many connections in Hopkinton, including friends in town as well as the Hopkinton YMCA, where their kids are frequent attendees. Hopkinton residents also have been regular patrons of The Corner Market. “Hopkinton has been huge for us, especially during the pandemic,” he says. “They were always supportive and ordered food constantly. We definitely owe Hopkinton a lot.”
