After just Five years in business, U-Box-It took home the bronze award at the 2008 International Design Excellence Awards by BusinessWeek for its eco-friendly approach to junk removal. For founder Antonio Mammone, this must have been a sweet victory—he'd spent years designing efficient and innovative waste management products. Each of his U-Box-It bin is made from recycled materials and delivered to the customer's door in an easy-to-assemble flat format. Once it's there, customers can keep it as long as they want, filling it with junk at their leisure, or passing it off at a guest bedroom for their least favorite relatives. Once they've filled it to the top, customers make one quick phone call, and the box of junk is picked up within two days, then taken to a facility where the junk is sorted and recycled or disposed of as necessary.
