Junk Badger Junk Removal has merged with Camo Crew Junk Removal, bringing two independently owned, environmentally focused businesses together to better serve the community as Camo Crew Junk Removal. Andrew Crum, who founded Junk Badger in 2022, will become Camo Crew’s Chief Operations Officer and partner with owner Andy Weins for future growth.

“Andrew has a wealth of knowledge, has built a great reputation, and cares about the environment,” said Weins. “It’s a great fit.” The partners also share a passion for serving our community: Weins has served our country in the U.S. Army Reserves for over 20 years, while Crum spent 10 years serving local communities as a professional firefighter in Menomonee Falls, Watertown and West Allis. Crum said the move is “an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.”

In addition to expanding his capacity to donate, recycle and re-use materials with Camo Crew’s warehouse facilities, the new role expands his capacity to lead. “I loved being a firefighter, and now I’m ready to take on a larger role within the junk removal industry and my community.”

Crum reached out to Weins after listening to Weins’ “Trash Talk Business Podcast.” As the two got to know each other, they realized the benefits of a partnership. “We’re a couple of business owners who got together and decided they could be stronger together,” said Weins.
