Junk hauling may sound like a questionable product to sell: it assumes that people will pay to get rid of ratty sofas and assorted items in professional and socially conscious ways. Almost every house has an excess of junk which often fills the garage, every closet in the house, the attic, storage sheds, basement, and what was supposed to be the guest bedroom.
People spend a lot of money every month renting storage spaces across town to store the junk they do not have room for. If you want to earn big cash, and help rescue others from under the dusty thumb of junk, consider starting a junk hauling business.

The higher the satellite, the longer it stays in orbit, and the more likely it is to break apart. The pieces may stay in orbit for years, decades or even centuries.
