- 266: The Simplest Side Hustle Ever? How to Earn $30-50 an Hour Picking up Trash
Brian Winch calls it “America’s Simplest Business.”
What started as a side hustle way back in 1981 has now grown into a $650k a year operation.
So what does Brian do?
His company picks up litter from parking lots. Sadly, it's still an essential service (boo litterbugs!), but has very low startup costs and Brian says you can earn $30-$50 an hour doing this on the side.
What prompted Brian to pick up the phone and ask property management companies if he could handle their litter picking contracts?
“I decided I liked my job but I couldn’t see myself doing this for the rest of my life and I wanted more,” Brian said. In just a few months he was earning more part-time in this side hustle than he was at his full-time job.
It's freelancing -- brick-and-mortar style.
Tune in to hear how Brian landed his first clients, how he priced his service, and how he scaled the business to remove himself from the day-to-day trash pickup.
With the decent pay, hours that fit around most day jobs, minimal start-up costs, and no prior experience necessary, it’s a side hustle success story that's worth checking out.
