Exactly What Is Junk or Trash

We say that we are the trash hauling and junk removal business.  It sounds simple and straightforward doesn’t it?  For some unknown reason it is more complicated than it looks. Exactly what is trash or junk?  This my friends is the proverbial $1M question. Like many of you I quickly went to the old standby, the dictionary to get a definition of “Junk”, and this is what I learned.                       “Old or discarded articles that are considered useless or of little value” Seems straightforward, but I have a little bit of a problem with this definition. First of all it defines Junk as “OLD”.  Is old truly a requirement for JUNK? Second, it also refers the items as “DISCARDED”.  This clearly states that it has already been thrown away. Third, it described as something of “Little Value”.  According to who?  The old adage, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” immediately comes to mind. Let’s rethink the definition of JUNK a little bit and add a few new ideas to the definition. You Haven’t Used It In A Year This could include clothes, a piece of furniture nestled in the back of the garage, old toys or play equipment, a treadmill, your old dusty and musty college textbooks.  By now you should be getting the picture clearly. You Recently Bought A New or Updated One What did you do with the obsolete TV or computer?  Is it tucked away in the basement?  How about the new counter top appliances like to coffee maker or toaster?  Maybe it’s a lawnmower...

An Artist, an Illustrator, Philanthropist, and Bon Vivant

I posted this blog several years ago. The trash hauling business is very interesting.  I get to meet a lot of people with some very interesting resumes.  I hope you enjoy this encounter.   A few months ago I met an interesting individual.  This morning I saw an article in the Noblesville Daily Times and the Noblesville Star about this man. Our introduction came via the internet, followed by a phone call, and ultimately in person.  Ken has hired me to remove a large yet defunct television from his basement. As I entered the basement, I found myself in a large multi-purpose room that was a combination of TV room, home office, library, and art studio/gallery.  Paintings were hanging on the walls and leaning up against the walls in no particular fashion or order. As I commented on some of the artwork, I was given a brief tour of some of the work.  Soon the computer was switched on and with a few clicks of the mouse I was given a private showing of his computer generated art.  I saw a variety of colors and shapes was even given a demonstration on how the works were created.  A few clicks later and I was being shown a collection of illustrations for a soon to be released children’s book, “Three Sister Dragons”. After a few minutes the mouse was put into action to reveal another set of drawings.  This time I was looking at the progress drawings for what ultimately became the seal for the Environmental Protection Agency.  I was also treated to the story of symbolism of the seal...
