About IREP Junk Removal
IREP, I Recycle Everything Possible, is proud to be a Texas based, woman-owned five star business operating since 2012.
Kelly Johnson started hauling unwanted items as a side job in 2012 while she was managing a restaurant. She is a dedicated, hard-working entrepreneur and mother who moved to Texas from the Chicago area. She’s owned multiple businesses over the years, and still owns and runs a candle making business. You may even catch her out in the field working alongside the haulers.
In 2020 IREP really took off with a lot of help from the local business networking community. She has been quickly growing in the Austin, Texas area. She’s grown from two people (including herself) a pickup truck and trailer, to about 10 employees, four box trucks and trailers servicing a 30-35 mile radius.
Within the business she launched a sustainability program where we sell gently used secondhand items, as well as donate items to local people, charities, organizations and stores. This helps us keep our mission to recycle 60% or more of everything hauled away.
We truly maximize space and minimize waste while helping the local community. Follow our social media accounts to see the proof.
If you use our services or purchase any items of ours, then you are an honorary hero of the planet helping to save it one item at a time.
About IREP’s Mission
It’s simple. We want to help save the world by recycling and supporting the local community. Recycling is our superpower. We encourage and share knowledge about recycling and how it affects us locally and globally. When we give back, we keep it as local as possible.
What We Do
We remove and recycle unwanted items from residential and commercial locations, as well as offer groundwork and bulk removal from dumpsters, and locally recycle everything possible. Our main mission is to help save the world.
IREP is happy to support our local community. We give new life to many discarded items we collect by donating to local charities, shelters, non-profits, and other organizations. Clothing, furniture, and other unwanted items are then made available to those who need them most.
