About Us

Founder Alex Broches a.k.a. 'the main dude"


Hi everyone! My name is Alex and I am the proud founder of The Junk Removal Dudes. 

What started as an accidental part-time hustle, in the small town of Sycamore, IL in 2015, has now become a company with 10 employees serving over 42 cities in Northern Illinois and now Southern Wisconsin & Northwest Indiana.  Whether it's a clean-out of a hoarder home, a celebrity clean-out of a mansion in the Chicago suburbs, or even a basic small pickup of garage debris in rural Illinois; we've seen and done it all. 

Several years ago, my mom had asked me if I knew anyone that could get rid of some junk out of her customers home. (My mother owns a house cleaning business)

At the time, I said to her that I could do it. I didn't really know what I was getting into, but I told my mom I would do it.   

That one job turned into eventually two jobs a week, then 3 jobs a week, then 4-6 jobs a day..

Then 15-20 jobs a month....Then 30 jobs a month...Then 70 jobs a month...

Then, a record number of 96 homes in 1 month. 

Over the years, we have had various media outlets take notice. I have been  featured on  MTV, NBC Chicago, WGN 9 Chicago three times, FOX Chicago 10, The Chicago Tribune, The Daily Herald, The Daily Chronicle and several other media outlets.

Our following on social media fans continues to grow organically as well. We post many before & after photos and videos of our clean-outs. Some months, our Facebook page will have a viral reach of 133,000+ views.  We have built a large social media following that not only loves the before & after photos of our projects, but also the fun and camaraderie we have with our team. Doing a great job for our customers and having a fun time in the process, that's what the ultimate job is.

  In my free time, I enjoy going fishing, hiking or traveling.  I also love watching hockey, go Blackhawks!  Also, I am an author. I document my hardships I endured during my youth and my other business failures. In my memoir, I document how I was able to overcome these obstacles. My book is called "A Dark Path To Light". 

It was recently endorsed by two best selling authors: James Altucher & Steve Scott. 

I want to say thank you to our wonderful customers over the years. It's been a humbling experience. Not only have I met so many wonderful people from different backgrounds over the years, but also the fun and experiences i've had doing this type of work I will never forget. For me, it doesn't even seem like work most days. Each day, is an adventure and a blast. This is the best part of the job.  I am very fortunate and grateful how things have unfolded.  

Thank you for your continued business and the wonderful experiences over the last few years. 

The future is looking bright and The Junk Removal Dudes are ready to expand into new territories in the upcoming year.

What a wild ride it's been. 

Gratefully & Respectfully:

Alex Broches - Founder & Owner of The Junk Removal Dudes
