Description

Founded in 2008, this Plymouth-based company has plans to trash the traditional waste-hauling industry model. It's a franchise operation that touts itself as an environmentally conscious garbage collection and disposal service, encouraging waste reduction and increased recycling among its costumers through education and lower costs (recycling pickup is free). GarbageMan currently operates in two states, with plans to expand across the country. With revenues jumping from $419,304 in 2009 to $8.9 million in 2012, the company that Sorenson co-founded is green in more ways than one.
