Happy Pride!

It’s Pride season and we wanted to wish everybody a HAPPY PRIDE!  

1-800-GOT-JUNK? has a history of celebrating freedom and family at annual Pride events across the continent. San Diego, Ottawa, Orlando, Twin Cities and Vancouver are just some of the cities that have seen our shiny blue trucks make their way through the parade.

This year Washington DC decided to make a splash at their Capital Pride event, one of the largest public celebrations in the city, drawing 250,000+ proud supporters.

The 1-800-GOT-JUNK? team strutted their stuff wearing our exclusive “I Heart Junk” t-shirts and pumping water guns at the enthusiastic crowd. Check out DC’s Pride photos, which include #1 Pride hunk, Ops Manager Dave [those muscles!!] and General Manager Gregory, all suited up in Police gear. Work!

The response was so great that the team has already started planning a bigger extravaganza for next year, which will include a water gun refill station on the truck. We’re always innovating here at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? :D

Hope you have a fun, safe and inspiring Pride season!
