It didn’t take long for Josh Cohen to realize that other people’s trash could be his treasure.

The 3-year-old Manhattan resident launched his business, The Junkluggers, in 2004 while still in college after hearing that a pal made $100 hauling away a neighbor’s refrigerator.

The summer between his junior and senior years, he printed up flyers on his parents’ computer offering to tote away unwanted items for a fee and began stuffing them in mailboxes around his Connecticut hometown.
