Jeff Gangloff and Bart O'Toole, the minds behind St. Charles Junk, launch crews of rubbish collectors on crusades against clutter of every kind. Talented teams cart off Christmas trees that have been placed outside the home, leaving customers with ample living-room space for the upcoming Cinco de Mayo's traditional cactus. The handymen can also rid households of furniture, appliances, dry wall, and grumpy roommates—3 cubic yards' worth of junk-removal services will take care of roughly 10 medium-size boxes filled with trash or 10 50-gallon trash bags stuffed with shopping bags. After hauling away a potpourri of junk, the staff takes care to recycle any recyclable materials; the oddments will go on to enjoy a long and happy life in a local landfill.
