The Phoenix landfill takes in about 1,000,000 tons of waste every year, and locally owned and operated M3 Junk Removal has stepped up to help save furniture from the dump. M3 Junk Removal is a division of North Phoenix- based M3 Commercial Moving & Logistics. The company operates on a “donate first, trash second” model. UMOM, New Life Center, and St. Vincent de Paul receive donations from M3 Junk Removal, giving gently used items a second life and preventing them from hitting the landfill.
“One of the main goals at New Life Center is to provide domestic violence survivors with all the tools they need to reestablish their independence in the safest way possible,” says Myriah Mhoon, CEO of New Life Center. “By lifting the financial burden of having to furnish their new spaces from scratch, survivors have one less bill to worry about when they exit our shelter. We are incredibly thankful to Muscular Moving Men for providing these much-needed items and helping the residents at NLC.”
M3’s Junk Removal team is able to donate a trailer full of furniture every month to nonprofits—which is the equivalent of furnishing about six to 10 apartments.
After assessing the condition of its furniture pickups, M3 can donate more than 70% of the items received on job sites.
“When we pick up furniture, we are continually surprised at the high quality of the items that people are wanting to get rid of,” says Ethan Delahunty, director of M3 Junk Removal. “There might be a scuff or scratch, but these items are still in great condition and can easily be used by someone else. We are thrilled that our charity partners are able to use these items to assist the communities they serve.”
Most recently, M3 Commercial Moving & Logistics teamed up with The Society of St. Vincent De Paul to help them continue to feed vulnerable families in need. After a year of companies not being physically in their offices to host food drives and families still having to choose between paying rent or buying groceries, the need to put food on plates is greater than ever.
The company hosted the food drive from February to May 10, and during that time, coordinated drop-offs and pickups of complimentary donation boxes to local businesses. With the help of 20 local businesses, M3 Commercial Moving & Logistics was able to donate a truckload of food to the organization.
M3 Commercial Moving & Logistics handles all aspects of office moving. Move management, records storage, technology needs, systems furniture installation, and warehousing are all part of its services.
