Ho, ho, ho, and welcome to the December edition of Talkin’ Trash, the official e-newsletter of your favorite Fort Mill-area junk removal, moving help and microstorage service. This content is designed to keep busy stakeholders like you informed with our latest news, customer views and special deals.
Last month we discussed the myriad ways that we are thankful for your business, and especially your support as we grow this enterprise literally from the ground up.
As we progress through the winter holiday season, it’s time to focus on giving, and I’m going to share some ways that Trash & Stash can help you and your loved ones celebrate a less-cluttered yuletide and new year.
You like to save money, right? Especially when it comes to gift ideas?
How about free? Here’s a great little stocking stuffer idea if you have young ones in your familial crew: download Trash & Stash’s coloring book, “More Than a Junk Trunk.” Authored by yours truly with illustrations by @jendigiart (Fiverr). The book explains Trash & Stash’s business model in simple terms while also teaching children the value of hard work, caring, being helpful, resourceful and environmentally-aware.
The coloring book is all about connecting with our community, because we live here and are a part of it too. And one of the ways Trash & Stash fosters that sense of community is by supporting the Isabella Santos Foundation, a local non-profit that works tirelessly to increase the life expectancy of kids battling rare forms of cancer. Trash & Stash’s 2nd Life Program has donated more than $1,800 to ISF in just a few months, while also recycling items that were probably headed for local landfills.
In the sprit of holiday giving, if you donate $25 or more to the Isabella Santos Foundation, we’ll give you a 10 percent discount on junk removal or moving help.
And here’s my last gift suggestion: is somebody on your wish-list, let’s say, a collector, but needs to free up more space in their house – but they don’t want to let go of their possessions? Solve their space/clutter problem by giving them the gift of Trash & Stash’s microstorage. Their stuff will be out of sight, and off-site, but only a phone call away.

Happy holidays and here’s to a less-cluttered new year and beyond.

Word of Mouth
Providing shockingly human customer service is Trash & Stash’s No. 1 priority, and cultivating relationships is what we’re all about. We toot our horn a little bit now and then, but we really dig it when customers sing our praises.
So let’s hear it from another satisfied customer, Marianne Painter, who gave us a recent five-star review:
“Cameron and his team where amazing to work with. Responsive, On-time, fast and absolutely professional. Will definitely be calling them again when I need help.”
