As a busy wife and mom, I saw a need for improvement in home trash removal services; and – as a serial entrepreneur – I thought, “I can fix that!” After having built and managed two thriving dating services (www.1on1matchmaking.com) for over 20 years, I’m thrilled to be launching our new venture, Trash Can Valet. With a clear demand from homeowners for a luxury approach to trash can management – and the fact that I’m nuts about trash cans – I can hardly contain my excitement about this new business!
Parker is currently a senior majoring in Psychology at Kennesaw State University. He is one of 6 children and attended Armuchee High School in Rome, GA. After graduation Parker will be joining the staff of Campus Outreach Georgia Tech. Besides hauling cans, Parker plays soccer to stay in shape.
Daniel is excited about the opportunity of working with Trash Can Valet as our Operations Manager. He is an Atlanta native, a Buckhead resident, and an all around great guy. Daniel is our only employee that drives around town in the “Green Machine” company vehicle. When he is not working, he enjoys reading, watching sports, and hanging out with friends.
Instrumental in setting up technology systems to manage Trash Can Valet’s growing list of clients, Laura has also streamlined our communications to enable our valets to be as efficient as possible. An Atlanta native who attended St. Pius X www.spx.org , before graduating from the University of Georgia www.uga.edu , Laura spent her summers working at Camp Greystone, Moose Head Lodge, and One on One Matchmaking.
One of Trash Can Valet’s first employees, Jim’s initial role included proudly wearing our uniform to promote our new concept to Buckhead homeowners at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market. During the summer, Jim and several of his fraternity brothers also walked nearly 30 miles in one week to tag the cans across our target areas with our marketing materials. Currently enrolled at The University of Alabama www.ua.edu , Jim previously attended The Lovett School – www.lovett.org .
As the main team member supporting our back office operations, Emily handles billing, email marketing, and customer service. Originally from Indiana, she continues to be a wonderful One on One Matchmaking www.1on1matchmaking.com matchmaker!
Our youngest team member, Andy currently attends Woodward Academy www.woodward.edu . He has logged the most hours walking and walking (and walking!) along Buckhead streets taping our marketing materials to cans. Wearing the uniform with pride, his hard work and dedication continue to be a major reason for our progress. In fact, most of our first clients have come from the cans he tagged. While he can’t drive yet, given a ride and map to our target territories, when it comes to hunting cans, this kid can hunt!
