Brian Scudamore launched 1-800-GOT-JUNK 24 years ago as a means to pay for his college education, but as the company grew and one hauling truck in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, became more than 1,000 in the U.S., Canada and Australia, he never looked back. The company is projecting a record year in 2013 with $126 million (or more) in revenue as customers have learned to trust the brand as their go-to junk hauler. “There’s too much stuff getting produced and thrown away,” Scudamore admits. “We’re consumer driven. We have to figure out as human beings how to continue to have things reused, and that is the core of our business.”
