Noah Brogle, a 16-year-old resident in Pillagar, Minn., launched a curbside recycling company called One Earth Recycling in his hometown last December. Since launching, Brogle has signed up 75 customers who each pay him $10 a month to haul away their recyclables every Sunday afternoon.
In addition to running his own company, Brogle is helping his high school improve its recycling efforts and working to educate his fellow peers about the importance of recycling.

The owner of the first curbside recycling company in Pillager works his route on Sunday afternoons.
It’s not that Noah Brogle wouldn’t rather do his pick-ups on weekdays. He can’t. He’s in high school.
“It takes probably six hours total,” says Noah. “Start at about 12:30, finish about 6:00.”
Since launching his company last December, the Pillager High School junior has signed up 75 customers, each paying him $10 a month to haul away their discarded recyclables once a week.
