Hoarding Clean Ups

Do you or someone you care about struggle with hoarding?

I know from personal experience how debilitating hoarding can be. I’m Joe, and I’m the owner of EarthWise. Caring for a very dear loved one who struggled with hoarding taught me a lot about how to handle these types of situations. No matter how bad you think your situation is, it is not hopeless! EarthWise can help.

Please believe me when I tell you that you have no reason to be embarrassed and please trust me when I say we have seen it all.

There are many companies who claim to be “hoarding experts”. I’m not going to say that they aren’t, but I will say that many companies want to take a simple situation and turn it into a complicated procedure in order to justify charging exorbitant prices. Now when I say simple, my intent is not to down play the gravity of the situation. What I am saying is that the situation can be remedied in a straightforward and uncomplicated way that makes the process easy and affordable for everyone involved.

The goal of our company is simple. Help you reclaim your home and the valuables that may have been lost in it. Period. Everything of minimal monetary value gets removed and disposed of. Everything else gets put aside for you to keep. Some clients choose to have us do a complete hoarding trash out which means everything goes. In that event, we still set aside items that could be of value. Then, you decide if they should be tossed out or if you’d like to keep them at point.

As hoarding jobs can be sensitive situations, I like to personally oversee every single hoarding project that we perform. Your thoughts, feelings and concerns are my number one priority. While we cannot have you in close proximity to our crew while we are working due to liability issues, we are happy to honor all reasonable requests as far as how you want the job handled. We are also mindful of your neighbors throughout the process.

Speaking of neighbors, If you are feeling embarrassed by the situation and would rather not have curious neighbors hovering around while the clean out is taking place, we can arrange for an after hours clean out, in which case most of the work is performed between the hours of 8pm-8am.

Unlike most of our competitors, our trucks do not have signage that says 1800-JUNK SOMETHING. Rather, they simply say EarthWise Hauling. Our clients appreciate not having an ugly junk truck or dumpster in the driveway.

There are many more reasons why EarthWise Hauling is the best choice for your hoarding clean up project, but the number one reason why we are the best, is because we care. We care about you, your safety, your health, and your home.

If you or a loved one has been dealing with a hoarding situation, please take advantage of our free on-site walk-through. I will personally come to the home at a time that is convenient for you. Once there, I will assess the situation and give you a flat rate quote for the entire project.


Junk Removal pricing is 100% transparent.

It’s based on a simple and fair volume system. You only pay for how much space your junk takes up in one of our trucks. Our interactive pricing widget below can help you estimate how much junk you have so you can understand the way we price long before our uniformed team arrives. Keep in mind, our pricing includes all taxes and disposal fees.

Our truck can hold an industry standard 15 cubic yards of junk, trash or debris. However, being a family owned small business with no franchise fees, we can offer prices that are about 30% lower than national junk removal companies! Don’t believe us? CLICK HERE to see the astronomical price difference!

Hate hidden fees?

We do too! That’s why we don’t hide ours.

You should expect to pay extra if:

1. You require our team to dismantle or disassemble items for you prior to loading or if there are small items and loose trash that we need to gather up and load into bags or boxes before loading onto our truck.

2. You have a specialty item that is unusually heavy or awkward, such as a piano, safe, or hot tub.





Don't Take Our Word For It

"I have used this service several times now at various address's and they are the very best at what they do. Pleasant workers always, they take all of my stuff in record time and the fee is reasonable. So easy to schedule a pick-up and they show up when they say they will! Love these guys, keep up the good work."

Dianne W - Yorba Linda, CA

"We just had great prompt service for a specialty trash pickup. We started with the website and all communication was quick and responsive with the office. Upfront pricing was the best part of the service with no surprises to be had.  

Highly recommended."

Jr C - Los Angeles, CA

"Amazing experience! Leo was great! Answered the call right away, talked me through my options, asked me to text pictures of what we needed hauled, and then scheduled my pickup for the next day.

So worth the money. Really appreciate this business and will be recommending to friends and family!"

Katie S - Mission Viejo, CA

"Cleared out a 2 bedroom and living room apartment loft in Irvine! They are super fast and efficient. Will recommend to all of my military buddies that are always on the move and or just want to get rid of excess furniture! Don't hesitate and give them a call or book online."

Jeremy M - Irvine, CA

"They still deliver excellent customer service and professional care. As others have mentioned, from scheduling to pick-up, EarthWise Hauling delivers. Definitely highly recommend, and will be sure to contact them again in a few months for a larger haul."

Kris P - Orange County, CA

"Last March, my husband and I realized some of our items just had to go and, unfortunately, they were no longer in an acceptable condition to donate.  The idea of these items just being dumped in a landfill didn't sit well with us.  We decided to pay more and live with the knowingness that we did something very good for the planet!"

    How is EarthWise Hauling Eco-Friendly?

    We have not dumped at a landfill in over 10 years!

    We recycle up to 100% of your junk! We accomplish this by hand sorting your unwanted goods in our warehouse facility. We then take various types of materials to the proper recycling facilities and donation centers. In fact, we even have our own EarthWise Online Second-Hand Store! This enables us to repurpose tons of “junk” that would’ve otherwise not have been able to see new life.

    What About Our Trucks?

    What good is recycling when the truck that’s doing it is pumping out pollutants all day? That’s what we thought too!

    As of March 2015 we switched over to Natural Gas powered trucks. We are the only junk removal service in California with clean burning CNG trucks. This is just another way we strive to reduce our carbon footprint, even as we drive between customers and recycling centers.

    Over the last 10 years, EarthWise Hauling has diverted over 10,000,000 lbs of waste from Orange County landfills!
