Our Green Fleet

Green Fleet | 323-633-0610 | Go Junk Free AmericaGo Junk Free America doesn’t just talk about being America’s greenest junk removal service – we live it out! One way we do this is through our “green fleet,” which is an apt name for the group of eco-friendly trucks we use to collect your junk and take over 80% of it to recycling and collection centers where it can be recycled and reused.

How can large commercial trucks be eco-friendly? While large in size, we do everything possible to make sure that they’re low in impact, including painting all our trucks with low-VOC paint.

VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, are substances made from natural sources that, when combined, form a molecule with a very low boiling point – sometimes as low or lower than the average outdoor temperature. In paints, these are most commonly solvents. When VOCs in a paint solvent meet the air, they begin to evaporate, releasing carbon into the atmosphere. Low-VOC paints reduce the carbon footprint of our vehicles by eliminating this continual slow release into the air.

Green Fleet | 323-633-0610 | Go Junk Free AmericaWe also use oversize trucks that are up to 34% larger than our competitors’. Our beds are 16 cubic yards, meaning we can haul a lot of stuff in a single vehicle and a single trip, instead of increasing the number of vehicles on the road. Our weight capacity is also up to 200% more than our competitors’ vehicles, which is just another way to reduce the number of vehicles needed for any single job.

Finally, our newest green initiative has been the addition of a diesel-electric hybrid, the Hino 195h, which is one of a very short list of Class 5 dual-powered trucks, and one of 13 trucks that has been recognized by the State of California for its energy-efficiency through the California Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP).

This efficiency combined with our standard practices of using low VOC paint and putting fewer trucks on the road mean that we’re able to clean your home or business and help keep our environment clean at the same time.
