Founders: Meet Ashley and Janiel

The Keller junk removal experts eliminating trash one job at a time.

Ashley and Janiel are two empowered young women transforming homes, businesses, and communities with their specialized junk removal services. They work hard every day to beautify Keller and the rest of the DFW metroplex with their wide array of junk removal services. These two bright, strong-minded, and hardworking ladies broke free from societal expectations, and the expectations they set for themselves to found Mad Trash and become a trusted name in the North Texas junk removal industry. Together, they strive for 100% satisfaction 100% of the time. With that mentality, they’ve had the opportunity to service homeowners, business owners, retail shops, general contractors, and even had America’s largest homebuilder calling them for work.


Mad Trash wasn’t always the fierce female-led team it is today. Ashley started the first iteration of the junk removal company with her brother and husband (now-ex)– then named Mad Cleaning. In fact, that’s how the company got its name. Mad is an acronym derived from the initial trio’s names: M for Matt, A for Ashley, and D for Daren. Within a few months, the team parted ways and Ashley enlisted the help of her best friend, Janiel. This was a blessing in disguise because this is when their journey to success really began.

Since the two came together, they’ve loved every moment and have watched the company flourish. It’s been a journey like no other, but that’s not to say there haven’t been obstacles to overcome. When they started, the two had a limited working knowledge of the logistics of junk and trash removal in Texas. They didn’t even know you had to pay to dump at the landfills! But they taught themselves every step of the way to ensure they could provide customers with the highest quality service possible. They’ve been careful and taken calculated risks along the way that have paid off tenfold. All of their hard work and research exposed them to amazing new experiences and opportunities for growth. Since starting to grow the company, the gals have even been able to expand their fleet and now offer unmatched junk removal services to folks across Northern Fort Worth.  


Mad Trash is honest, flexible, and efficient. We aren’t about gimmicks or pressure selling. We got started in the business because we have a genuine love for our community and helping people out. We’re constantly striving to improve upon our services and expand our knowledge to better accommodate our clients. Now, our services include same-day cleanout and pick-up services, dumpster rentals, and even contactless payment and pick-up for our customer’s comfort and convenience. We value compassion, trustworthiness, and customer care. When you hire us for a junk removal job you can be sure the job will get done right. In the past, our clients have been pleasantly surprised by our results when we take on a job. Junk removal and waste management has historically been a male-dominated industry– but we have proven ourselves through hard work, determination, and impeccable customer service. Sometimes we hear things like, “Is it just the two of you,” or “Are you going to be able to lift that?” And we wow them every time with our strength, expertise, and ability to execute any junk removal job effortlessly. 


We pride ourselves on working smart, not hard. A lot of times this mindset helps us get the job done faster and safer than our competitors who depend on brute strength. At Mad Trash, we’re dedicated to becoming as efficient as possible and continuing to reinvest in ourselves. Investing in our company allows us to have the best, safest, most user-friendly tools so we can tackle any job that comes our way.

Our Happy Clients

“The entire process was upfront and seamless!  I ended up texting her later than I expected to get info but she was perfectly fine with the time. The dumpster was delivered the very next day of me booking! There weren’t any hidden fees that weren’t shown online. Pickup was exactly the same. I will definitely use them in the future and refer my friends to them! Thank you!”

– P. Thomson

“These women were fast, efficient and friendly! They removed a sectional sofa filled with remnants of three growing boys dropped snacks and spills, lost toys and wrappers. The coziest recliner, a sectional patio sofa that became a puppies chew toy and large trampoline that had some legs buried in the Earth.  Quick, easy communication and quality transaction all around! Highly HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!”

– J. Cook

“EXCELLENT customer service! Janiel hauled x2 dumpsters on a Saturday for us, super quick and efficient service. I work for a water, fire mold remediation company and mad trash was exactly the type of company we were looking for! We will continue to use them and recommend to others”

— L. Humphrey

“Mad Trash is AMAZING! We can’t say enough great things. We’ve hired them now multiple times and will be having them come back to remove old furniture for us. They are so sweet, professional, well priced and communicate everything immaculately with you. I also love that they are just a text message away. 10/10 would recommend.”
