Stephen's story

Accion just made a loan to a start-up green business! Stephen just opened the doors to his new business Dumping Treasures. Before starting his own business, Stephen worked for a government run waste management systems for many years. He saw firsthand how garbage removal companies buried in its depths “treasures”/recyclable products that were worth saving. Through his experience, Stephen came up with the idea for his new business. Dumping treasures' mission is to donate and/or recycle whatever is possible from garbage. The goal is to minimize their carting load to keep overhead costs at a minimum while still donating and recycling items that people consider trash that for other's may be treasures. The planned operations will be to purchase multiple dumpsters of various sizes. The dumpsters will be homeowner friendly by having the ability to be placed in areas usually not accessible by trucks. The company also plans to service roofers and concrete workers. Please help us help this creative business get off the ground!
