6. Take care of waste in a clean way at Junk Hunters

Environmentally-friendly waste disposal is increasingly desirable, and as more people and businesses become aware of the human impact on our planet, the need for clean ways to get rid of unwanted items will only grow. Junk Hunters is ahead of the pack. Originating in 2008, all that Founder Harsha Rathnayake had was a single van and a vision. This evolved into Junk Hunters in 2017, which recycles 70 per cent of the things it collects. As a franchise owner, this opportunity could provide you with a new income stream, and if you’re looking for flexibility, this also fits the bill, as you can work from home.
