AJMAN: A UAE-based junk collector says 2018 has been his busiest in 10 years.
Faisel Khan, who runs the Ajman-based Take My Junk, said, “Since 2008, we have been visiting an average of 300-350 houses a day during the months of May and June. But the number has doubled this time round.”
As the trend continues into July, the Indian Canadian said he cannot tell if the calls to clear junk have to do with people moving house within the UAE or relocating outside the country. “A large number of expats who call us are from Dubai. People here are always looking for better opportunities. The summer rush may also have something to do with the fact that schools are closed, so it’s easy for families to move homes,” he said.
