Welcome Researchers

Conducting Global Industry Research - 

1-800-GOT-JUNK? company logo

1-800-GOT-JUNK is a junk removal/ waste management company currently operating franchises in the U.S., Canada, and Australia. It is a privately-held company, which will limit your access to company financial and operating data from conventional sources used for public companies; for example, you will not find detailed financial statements or SEC filings like 10-K annual reports.

In order to complete this assignment, you will need to conduct some in-depth research about this company, its industries, and the country in which it is considering expanding. This guide includes resources recommended by the business librarians to complete this type of research.
