About this Article
Glen Hansen wants your junk. Working for Art's Junk Removal, a Mount Prospect business started by his father Art, Hansen spends his days desmantling, destroying and removing the junk stored in homes, condos, apartments and garages all over the northwest suburbs. The physically demanding task of moving thousands of pounds of junk each week takes its toll on Hansen, but he's learned over time how to minimize the stress on his body. Occasionally, he hires help, but "Crews cost money," he says.
