Arwood Junk Now Offers Junk Removal Services in the St. Nicholas Neighborhood
St. Nicholas is a small neighborhood on the south side of the St. Johns River, just east of San Marco. Like San Marco it was inhabited long before the area now comprising Downtown Jacksonville. During Florida’s Second Spanish Period, it was the site of Fort San Nicolas, which guarded the river crossing at the Cowford. This led to the area between the ferry and Miller’s Creek being known as “San Nicolas”. The name was later Anglicized to St. Nicholas.
After the Civil War this area was the site of vacation and retirement homes for several wealthy Jacksonville residents. Some of their former homes remain in the area. Today St. Nicholas is a chiefly residential neighborhood with some commercial zoning along Beach and Atlantic Boulevards

The Arwood Story, How it All Began
It all started when father and son began cleaning up metal factories in 1984. They thought of a way to recycle metal while offering clean-up services to the factories through dismantling old cranes, tanks and rail systems. Their exceptional service brought more business when factory owners contracted them to remove waste as well. They invested in roll-off trailers as a mean to accomplish this. With the resources to haul more waste, they began to seek out more opportunities for hauling. This led them to begin site clean up and hauling for home builders.
John C. Arwood, an American Indian, who grew up in the foothills of West Virginia as a Coal Miner’s son, understands what hard work is all about. His father taught him, “If you don’t work, you don’t eat.” He moved his family to Florida in the early 70’s where he took a job as a welder for Buffalo Tank. And this is where it all began.
Recycling has been a passion of John D. Arwood since he was a child. Even then he recycled aluminum cans and coke bottles while traveling around the neighborhood on his bicycle. This passion has motivated him to grow Arwood Waste & Demolition to the business it is today.
