One of the great environmental benefits of working in the junk removal business is the ability to give new life to old stuff either through finding a new home for an item (donations) or by finding creative uses for repurposing (which means adapting or utilizing the items or materials for a new purpose). In this new blog series – A Repurposing Story – Green Coast Rubbish President and CEO Eamonn Duignan will showcase his creative repurposing projects or what he also likes to think of as making junk great again.
