Local junk removal company putting artistic spin on dumpster rentals | Business News
“I’ve always wanted to start a business, but every idea I came up with was like a half a million dollars to start up,” he said. “I did a ton of research and found that we don’t have any big franchises here and saw that as an opportunity.”
He started four years ago with a full-service garbage disposal company. He got calls every week from people asking if he rented dumpsters, and he realized that this would be a great way to grow his business. In August he pulled the trigger and bought five dumpsters.
He recently bought five more.
He’s hoping to add some Route 66 topics and positive quotes to the next batch of dumpsters.
Some trash cans are painted black for people who prefer a simple dumpster.
“There isn’t even a standard for nice dumpsters,” he said. “Hopefully I can change that by providing nice dumpsters for residential areas.”
Not only is the artwork more aesthetically pleasing, but it also makes economic sense, as people tend to take better care of them, he said.
“I knew people would scratch them, and realistically they look great when they’re in the industry they’re in,” he said.
