Devil's advocate-

I love to ride the back of garbage trucks and empty folk's garbage in it.

I'm not sure this will make me rich.


It could if you started a private company offering competitive rates on garbage pick up to areas not included in municipal waste collection. Ever here of Mr. Rubbish?

Hey, it's exactly these kinds of necessary, albeit undesirable, services that *do* make money. I work somewhat with waste treatment plants, and those septic pumpers and treaters have quite the money-making machine going. Another "plus" about jobs like this--no fancy clothes that need dry cleaning, no appearances to keep up, no fancy car to drive...I wouldn't at all be surprised if many of these folks were millionaires next door.
