A relatively new business in Henderson that provides cleanup and cleanout services is available to help folks with junk removal and so much more.
Bill Dunston is a retired psychotherapist who relocated to the area from Pennsylvania. His business is called Green-bOURG Appliance and Junk Removal. The second part of the name is self-explanatory, but what in the heck is Green-bOURG?
Dunston answered that question and more on Thursday’s TownTalk. It’s a European term, he said, that evokes a sense of wholesomeness. It means “green grass, clean,” Dunston explained.
He chose the name so his enterprise would stand out and he could try some distinct branding.
“I want it to be unique, I want it to be different,” he added.
And it is unique. Dunston wants to especially help a demographic that he calls “unbefriended seniors.” It’s that group of older individuals who may not have family or friends to ask for help when they need it.
Unfriended seniors, he said, “have little to no resources – they don’t have kids, etc.” to provide help when it’s needed.
Dunston wants to use his business as a way to provide resources to that particular population who may feel isolated or not able to participate in activities as they once had been able to.
“I find that there’s a lot of work being done here, but we‘re not really identifying the top tier needy,” Dunston said. And he wants to be part of the solution and do more to identify and help a group of people that sometimes gets overlooked.
With a masters in counseling, Dunston has a good handle on how to help, and further studies at University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business provides a good base for how Green-bOURG should operate.
When he worked in Philadelphia, he didn’t have to look hard to find people in need. “The need is right there in your face, it’s easy to identify,” he said.
His goal is to identify people in the community to reach out to and provide resources.
Whether clients want to reclaim their garage, haul an appliance and more to the landfill or clean out an apartment so they can get their security deposit back, Green-bOURG may be able to help.
Dunston said he hopes to be a way to link people in the community to resources they may not be aware of. With a business plan that begins with operating from the heart, Dunston said he believes he can do a lot of good in the community.
