BALTIMORE — The most romantic day of the year is here, but for some it's a day that only reminds them of heartbreak.

For those brokenhearted Baltimoreans, there is a way you can dump your ex all over again. Heal the heartbreak this Valentine's Day by dumping their stuff for free!

“We are excited to help you move on, get some closure, and put the stuff in the dump truck, and get ready for 2019 love,” said Eric Jones, the owner of Junk King Baltimore.

Jones says it made sense to start this promotion because they are a junk collection company and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to help the community.

“You hear on Valentines Day a lot of people who are in love, who hate Valentine’s Day for various reasons. So we said why not give people a place to come to literally dump their stuff, dump their ex, and dump the misery of whatever that relationship was, and come on down and start something new,” said Jones.

Jones said physically throwing away your ex's stuff can really help you move on.

“It therapeutic. It’s a sense of relief that this is gone from your life and we have had people literally just toss it in because they wanted it to just disappear from their life.”

And on Thursday morning the truck saw everything, including golf clubs, boxes of pictures, scooters, hunting gear, fishing gear, unfinished projects, and more.

“You kind of get a little bit of everything and it really doesn’t matter. If it’s stuff that the ex left, stuff that reminds you of the ex you want to get rid of, bring it on down and we will take it,” explained Jones.

Junk King Baltimore was in the Canton area on Thursday morning from 7-10 a.m.
