Now there really is a start-up for everything

I dare you, dare you, to tell me we’re not in a tech bubble.

There’s a new startup called TrashDay — and as far as I can tell, this is a real thing — in San Francisco that will take your trash cans out to the curb for you on trash day.

You fill out a form, tell them where your trash cans are … and I guess you never have to worry about it again.

Ten bucks a week, four to six cans. 

I’m kind of hoping it’s a joke, and I just missed it.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
