About Our Owners

Long time family friends, Lester Luna and Gustavo Mesa never expected to be working as partners. Together, these business-minded individuals have built the New Haven County Junkluggers franchise into what it is today!

Gustavo, a graduate of Western Connecticut State University, had come on as a seasonal employee in 2014 for the founding Junkluggers franchise that covers Fairfield & Westchester counties. After falling in love with the business, he began to move up in the ranks, eventually managing 40+ employees and a fleet of over 15 trucks.

Gustavo always had hopes to one day own and operate his own unit, so in 2017, when the New Haven County franchise went up for sale, he approached Lester about being his partner.

Lester came to America from Guatemala when he was 15 years old. In 2005, after working with a paralegal for many years, Lester started a lawn and shrub care partnership, and eventually became CEO and sole owner. Around the time Lester was looking to invest into another business that was as rewarding, sustainable and eco-friendly as his current company, Gustavo introduced him to the Junkluggers team.

Lester immediately felt that he had found what he was looking for and, in April 2017, the two long-time friends took over as new owners of the Junkluggers of New Haven County.

Their mission is to set the standard for eco-friendly junk removal and disposal practices, giving back to the community through donating furniture and goods and decreasing our carbon footprint by the tons.
