About Trash & Stash
Inspiring big changes with simplicity & humanity.
What do we want? We want to be the most eco- friendly, most considerate, most responsive, easiest to use junk removal service in the greater Charlotte area. We want to make it super simple for people to do the right thing with the stuff they don’t need anymore.
Trash and Stash Mission Statement
Remove junk. Relieve stress. We make it easy for people to get rid of the clutter and the anxiety it causes. we find ways to improve the lives of the people closest to us. We focus on reducing our community’s negative impact on the world around us.
We do this because we live in a disposable world fueled by intrusive consumer marketing where we’re manipulated to buy things we don’t need and rewarded with instant gratification. We want to counter this by helping people filter and refocus. Gain balance.
Household clutter is stressful. No matter how it happened, the stuff we accumulate gets overwhelming. And costly. We see it everyday with our customers. But the truth is we deal with it in our own homes too. This is why we started Trash & Stash. We needed a way to regain control, get space back & to find ways to actually enjoy the things we treasure.
Junk removal as a lifestyle brand?
Our purpose is to help people simplify their lives. Said more simply… we solve “stuff” problems.
We know this sounds grand but the idea is simple. Too much stuff distracts from the things that are important. So, when we remove junk we remove the distractions. Then it’s easier to focus on the important things. In this context, junk removal service is more than a convenience/ It’s the first step in a simplified life.
B Corp Certification has been a goal of ours from the beginning. In 2023 it’s the plan. We are working on becoming one of (if not) the first junk removal business that is B Corp certified. This certification is an executable plan, accountability system and commitment to environmentally and socially responsible operations. Stay tuned to track our progress.
This first step is an important one because it’s the beginning of a journey. A journey we want to be a part of. We see Trash & Stash as both an instrument for change & a support resource. This is why we do more than junk removal. We’re a one- stop shop to declutter. Trash & Stash is a multi- tool for people interested in simplifying & minimizing.
Rage Against the Information Machine

What We Believe. What We Practice.
We’re local & community based. Fort Mill, South Carolina is our home & service area. Our service area is small so we can best serve our neighbors & exceed our service promise.
Whenever possible, we’ll hire or buy local. In a post COVID-19 world, the biggest day to day impact comes from those closest to us.
Keeping money in the local economy makes a big difference.
We all leave an impression on the world around us, we want ours to be a good one. Here’s some of the ways we do that:
- Treat others better than the way we wish to be treated.
- Do what we say we’re going to do. Even if its hard, costly & time consuming.
- Communicate clearly. Be direct, respectful & timely. Be solution oriented.
- Leave things better than we found it.
- Be sustainable. Adopt practices to reduce waste.
- Give back. Find ways to support the community.
My Story... The 1st Chapter of the 2nd Book.
Because of my former life, I’m an expert in operations, team building & creating incredible customer experiences.
With this expertise & an entrepreneurial spirit, I built a successful event services business. I managed sports events all over the US until…
A global pandemic
And this is what excited me about junk removal.
What I found is Trash & Stash Junk Removal.
My name is Cameron Ungar. I moved to Indian Land, SC from San Diego with my wife & 3 kids in August, 2018. The reason… to improve our quality of life. And that’s exactly what’s happened. We’ve fallen in love with the Carolinas & the southern lifestyle.
