Garbage Collection, Without the Noise or the Smell

On Roosevelt Island, the sonics of garbage are the jet-engine roar of a 1,000-horsepower vacuum buried within the bowels of this two-mile spit of land. Not that most residents would know it. All they hear are birds chirping, joggers panting and water rippling in the East River as pneumatic tubes buried beneath their feet do the dirty work, silently sucking garbage from their buildings at 60 miles per hour.

This invisible garbage has other benefits, too, especially at this time of year.
“It’s nice to walk out your door, and it doesn’t smell like a heaping pile of trash, like in Manhattan,” Abbie Kulhowvick, a former Upper East Side resident, said as she walked home from work last week.

Love to see this concept carried into new buildings as part of a “green or LEEDS” certification.

Burger King to McDonald’s: Let’s Make a ‘McWhopper’

Burger King’s mascot, “The Burger King,” is seeking a truce, albeit temporary, with Ronald McDonald.

In full-page ads running in The New York Times and The Chicago Tribune on Wednesday, Burger King, a perennial also-ran in the burger races, has asked McDonald’s, its battered but still potent archrival, to join forces.

The goal? To operate one restaurant for one day staffed by employees of both companies and selling a burger called the McWhopper, a blend of the Big Mac and the Whopper, the best-selling burgers at McDonald’s and Burger King.

Sales proceeds would be donated to Peace One Day, a nonprofit group seeking to raise awareness of the International Day of Peace, which was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1981 for the opening of its annual meeting.

What would your dream cleaning combo be? How about Airx odor control with Pampers diapers?

BYOB update #3

Two weeks ago we introduced the new Bullen branding program. BYOB is now live on the Bullen website with more information on the program. Here are are a few points of why you should have your own brand:

  • Reverse shrinking profit margins and stop selling the same brand as your competition.
  • Making your company stand out from others that just use redistribution.
  • Unique products designed to get you into more doors.
  • Improve market saturation with your own products.

Here is the link to the BYOB page at bullenonline:

More good golf this Sunday but Tiger is gone for the year. Might have to switch to football, Eagles are killing it so far.  Get out there and enjoy summer (remember last winter) while you can.

Have a great day and an even better sales week!
