Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. We noticed how many good items were being filled into our landfills. Seeing some of these items, I realized "hey some people can use that", as you know, one man's trash is another man's treasure. Even sometimes it is their treasure and simply don't have room for it. With environmental conditions the way they are, we couldn't site back and watch. So we developed this company to pick up materials and try eagerly to build relationships with local non-profit organizations who take the higher end materials we pick up, and redistribute them to the community.
Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.
A. There was a lady who I wont mention names for anonymity, who had a hoarder problem. She had a very hard time letting go of anything and her living conditions were deplorable. Her family called us in and we cleared the house out and the woman finally let go and allowed this. She was nearly in tears the entire time. When the job was done, and the place was clean and neat, she looked around and smiled, and it seemed like she was ready to begin the rest of her life that way. Our whole company is very proud of that story.
Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?
A. As with most fields, we gather the current information right from the field. However we do have employees who do research and look for ways to advance as a company and further build relationships with local companies who have similar interest in community development and environmental safety.
Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?
A. Well, as we've mentioned before, the exciting thing now, is helping the community by redistributing the nice items we pick up.
