American Junk Removal.

Servicing the Michiana area. South Bend, Mishawaka, Elkhart, Edwardsburg, and Niles.

Clean Out and Cleaning Company with Demolition and Hauling Services

We are not a franchise. We are a locally owned and operated trash and junk hauling company that has expanded into a residential and light Industrial Demolition company and Estate services company (We clean out houses and family estates after a loved one passes away).

We are a family business. I work with both my siblings. My brother is in charge of the trash and demolition trucks and trailers and my sister works in administration as the office manager.

This company was started from the ground up. I saw a need to have rental properties cleaned out after a tenant decided not to renew their lease. We were having trouble finding good, reliable, and efficient cleaners who could follow instructions. After a lot of headaches, I decided I could do it better.

 Although our slogan is “Just Point and it’s Gone”, I believe in fairness. We believe that our work and pricing should be fair to our customers and to ourselves. If it’s not fair to either party, it’s not a good deal, and I love win-win deals!

Before & After


We are who you need us to be when it comes to trash, hauling, junk, cleanouts, demolition and estates. Just share your problems and concerns with us and we’ll either help you or put you in the right direction. Since we are local, we have contacts and partnerships with Real Estate Brokers, Contractors and specialty companies that deal with asbestos and lead based paint, attorneys, title companies, and more.

American Trash is locally owned and operated by Rob Manuszak, an Army Veteran sent to the Persian Gulf in 1990, where I spent most of his tour in an Infantry Unit at Ft Polk, LA, with an eventual Honorable Discharge in 1993.

I was an enlisted Environmental Compliance officer for his battalion at Fort Polk, where I was also trained as a Combat Lifesaver. In Basic Training and AIT I was a Platoon Leader and won an achievement medal.

Additionally, I'm a licensed, insured and bonded building contractor and demolition contractor in St Joseph County, Indiana, where I also hold a trash and debris removal permit with the county. local Real Estate Brokers

Our company was born out of Real Estate and Residential Property Management. Trash and demo started with our first home we bought to Flip back in 2005. I was hired by a company to take pictures, change door locks and assess new houses. When we bought a house to rehab, normally the house needed cleaned out, carpet needed to be pulled and kitchens and bathrooms needed to be removed. Although the company was originally flipping residential retail properties, it soon became a buy, rehab and sell to Investor Company. Literally, trash just started piling up. That company, which now manages over 1000 units (or doors) for you fellow investors, is my biggest customer.

Which is just ONE reason among many that we love working with other Local Real Estate Brokers!
