Following up on what CASUDI wrote yesterday about the “Take It or Leave It” section in her local recycling facility, that’s a pretty darn good business idea, too.
|Hey, if people will bid on stuff for silent auctions,
maybe they would buy it from a recycling business.
Imagine all those garage sale leftovers, estate items that are still good but not antiques, decorations people are tired off but not worn out, and building supplies that just weren’t needed. Where are they all going? The trash.
So that’s a small town business idea: accept all those items that don’t have a home any more, sort and display them, and re-sell the good stuff.
Community bonus: I’m betting you’ll have more than enough items to also give some away to those in need, maybe working with local ministers.
In a small town, you could possibly even make part of it an “honor system” retail, like the “Take it or leave it” section CASUDI mentioned.
Will you retire rich? Probably not. Could you make a decent side income? Quite possibly.
