A national waste disposal firm is offering residents in Cornwall a chance to be their own boss and earn more than £70,000 a year by becoming rubbish hunters.
Junk Hunters is looking to widen its national reach by offering franchise opportunities to people interested in doing their bit to tackle the menace of fly tipping and improve recycling rates.
The firm said successful franchisees could enjoy huge financial rewards with projected profits hitting six figures after just two years.
But Junk Hunters has warned that only those with a genuine commitment to environmental issues will be considered for the opportunity.
Here are the job opportunities in Cornwall right now.
Harsha Rathnayake, managing director at the firm, said: “As part of our vision to become the UK’s leading rubbish disposal service, we are proud to offer prospective business people the chance to help keep Britain clear of waste by becoming a franchised branch of Junk Hunters.
“Becoming a franchisee means that you’ll be part of our increasing network of fellow waste collectors, as we aim to expand our business across the UK. ”

He added: “Unlike starting a business on your own from the ground up, becoming a Junk Hunters franchisee means that you’ll receive the benefits of having an immediately recognisable brand, as well as the support and expertise that our many years in the waste collection industry have given us.
“Customer service means everything to us. We have worked hard to build a great reputation, always turning up when we say we will, operating clean, shiny trucks and always clearing up when we are done.
“We are now excited to roll out across the UK with opportunities available for anyone with a genuine passion for improving the environment and at the same time prepared to work hard to win financial independence for themselves and their families.”
Junk Hunters franchises are available across the country and the buy-in fee includes everything required to run a successful junk clearance business including a brand new Isuzu N65.150 tipper truck with eye catching livery.
Mr Rathnayake said that those who join the company will be entering a growing sector and with more than 200 million tonnes of waste produced in the UK each year they will have plenty of work to do.
Local authorities in the UK spent £2.8 billion outsourcing waste disposal services in 2015, the most recent year figures are available.
During the same period 936,000 incidents of fly tipping were dealt with by councils – costing the public £49.8 million.

Successful applicants will receive support and training and will benefit from several different income streams with clients ranging from construction industry companies to councils and private households.
Many items such as scrap metal can be sold on, providing another income stream, while some items, such as toys and clothing, can be donated to charity.
Mr Rathnayake added: “Gross profits are projected to be £72k in the first year and should rise to £278,000 by the end of year five. We believe there is unlimited potential for the right people.
“There are no short cuts. We are committed to recycling as much waste as possible and increasing this every year. But if you share our passion for improving Britain’s environment the rewards are huge.”
