Have you ever heard of the phrase “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”? Sam started his own business when he was nine collecting other people’s garbage and recycling it for a check!
He was always fascinated by garbage collectors - he even had his sixth birthday party at the waste management building.
When he was nine he found out he could get paid by sending in old electronics and used printer supplies like ink, phones, and tablets.
So he started going around to businesses taking care of their old junk and sending it to recycling plants, who would send him a check. He even got paid $250 for an old tablet one time!
