JUNK BE GONE is a locally owned and operated business that frees up space in your home and garage by taking your unwanted and unused items away.

The small business was started by Michael Archambault, a former Lane County Deputy Sheriff, and Lisa Trecroce, a former Pharmacy Technician and RN.

According to their webpage, the two founded JUNK BE GONE as a way to gain more control over their livelihood and time.  They wanted to find a creative and low-stress business geared toward helping others.  A press release that the owners sent out when they started the business in 2005 explains their business cocept in greater detail.
