Cleaning Company Has Some Really Weird Junk In The Trunk

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One person’s trash is truly another person’s treasure – if that person runs a business called 1-800-Got-Junk.

The company franchises junk pick-up services around the country and the folks who take away the trash find everything from a working mechanical bull to sex dolls made from chicken wire.

As Ben Hoskins, who operates the San Diego franchise puts it: “Sometimes, you just don’t know what to say when you have to haul out really weird junk from someone’s home.”

Hoskins has personally hauled away such trashy items as two truckloads of pornography, a basement filled with Civil War muskets and a unicorn-shaped coffee table.

Those items sound bizarre enough but, sadly, for Hoskins, they weren’t weird enough to win a competition between franchises for the “Weirdest Piece of Junk.”

That dubious honor goes to the franchise in Kechener, Ontario, which hauled away a set of 6-foot-tall pink walkie-talkies that actually worked.
