Turning Garbage To Cash

By | January 15, 2007


Every thought of picking up garbage from the streets and wish you can turn it into cash? Well, this guy brought his dream to reality. He picks up trash from the streets of New York City, wraps them up, and sells them on the Internet. It costs $50 for a sealed transparent box of trash and over 700 cubes has been sold in 19 countries.

It’s an idea that takes virtually no start up fees. The products are free – straight out of the trash. The biggest onus is on marketing. An attractive web design is important. I would think finding customers would be hard, but they seem to be doing a pretty good job.

Pros: Super low cost.
Cons: Who would pay for garbage? (I pass by NYC garbage everyday.)
