$1 per bag for teen's apartment 'trashportation' service

Mowing lawns and shoveling snow have long been the go-to gigs for teenagers trying to earn some spending money. But what if you live in an apartment building?

One enterprising 13-year-old came up with the smart idea of a "trashportation" service, allowing his neighbors to outsource their garbage runs for $1 per bag. A photo of the young trash tycoon's flyer was posted by a Reddit user. See the post at http://imgur.com/J1O1U4o

I'm a 13-year-old student that is trying to earn money to buy a new camera to practice my photography, which is my passion. I would really appreciate your business. Thank you.

What they're saying

"When I lived in a 3rd floor apartment I had an infant and two dogs. Would have definitely paid for this service."
