Lee is a Greenville, SC native whom has lived in this area or close-by for most of his life. Lee attended the University of South Carolina in Columbia and received his BA in 2002. He became co-owner of JYD in early 2018 with a great friend that he has known since high school. Lee joined in on the business with visions of growing it from a one-man weekend/after work part-time junk hauling company to a sustainable, "green" business that goes well beyond junk removal. Lee and his business partner made a conscience decision to keep as much from the landfill as possible. Also during this time they came to notice that many things that customers wanted to be removed was not necessarily “junk” , but customers needed assistance with removal for various reasons such as downsizing, moving, etc. During the process of removal we found that the items that need removal many times were connected to memories, had stories, or had sentimental worth. This is when they realized that JYD can be respectful to those things and instead of going to the landfill we could refurbish, up-cycle or donate many of that “junk” into useful material for someone else to use that would give it a new life. JYD has focused our business around the Greenville area but recently has expanded to Hendersonville, NC. A few years ago Lee along with his wife, daughter, and two rescued dogs decided to move to Hendersonville. They are a family that loves the mountains and being outdoors. Now, with two home-bases, JYD is able to serve the Upstate of SC and Western NC with our eco-friendly junk removal business. Our company appreciates your interest in trusting us with the removal of your items.
