Building a $500 million empire out of junk

When Brian Scudamore told his parents he was dropping out of college to become a full time junk collector, they told him he was throwing away his future. At just 19, the idea for a junk removal service came to Scudamore while staring at a pile of garbage in a McDonald's parking lot.
