5-Year-Old Launches His Own Trash Business [Video]

Garbage Man Joe - Joe Jarvis

Joe Jarvis isn’t your average 5-year-old. Sure he enjoys playing with Legos and visiting his Grandma’s house on the weekend, but the fact that he has already started his own trash business is a bit extraordinary.

Garbage Man Joe’ as he calls himself charges his customers $0.25 to bring their trash container down to the curb every Sunday evening for pick-up the following morning.

It started when he created a flyer and distributed it throughout the neighborhood. His neighbors love the service and the entrepreneurial drive the 5-year-old is displaying.

Joe saves up his earnings to purchase things like toys and pocket watches, and judging from the video below, his revenue stream is thriving!

He’s even planning on expanding his trash business by hiring his younger sister and brother once they get a little older.

Joe says his brother – who just recently learned to walk – likes to toddle around with the trash containers already (with the help of Mom, of course).

When a local new reporter asked Joe whether he pays his little bro for helping out, he said “No, he’ll just swallow the money”. Maybe next year little guy!
