I’ll be getting a guest post from him and the full story of his operation soon, but in the meantime I’ll give you the thumbnail. This is a case study in some truly innovative sourcing.
JJ, as we’ll call him, has a circuit of dumpsters which he goes to every night. I’m not going to give away too much (he may reveal more in this blog post), but his route is mostly non-media, and includes both retail and “industrial.”
His methodology for finding which places threw out sellable items was simple detective work: One can reasonably assume that some (or much) of whatever a business sells ends up in the trash. From there, it was just a matter of doing the footwork until he hammered out a route of business that consistently threw away sellable product.
Once that was settled, his business was basically on autopilot. He hits every dumpster about twice a week, working about two or three hours a night.
Now that is a business.
