A city banker who quit his £250,000-a-year job to set up a modern-day rag-and-bone business has seen the company make its first £1m. Jason Mohr gave up his ‘soul-destroying’ job at investment bank NM Rothschild to open AnyJunk, which removes and recycles items from unwanted office furniture to garden rubbish.The 38-year-old, who is based in Wandsworth, has won a host of environmental awards and is now expanding across the country.
Mr Mohr charges homeowners and businesses to remove their waste and then recycles as much as possible. Less than 50 per cent goes to landfill, which he claims is far lower than with other firms carrying out similar work. Almost everything in his own offices, including some of the computer equipment, was thrown out by someone else.
