A. Jones Manure Hauling

" Marty looked at the row of stores to his right, a saloon, a barber shop, a general store, the Hill Valley newspaper office, a Chinese laundry, a post office — and there were men riding horses, folks in wagons, even a fellow walking along with a shovel and cart (the sign on the side said 'A. Jones. Manure Hauling') — everything you'd expect in a real western town."
—From Back to the Future Part II by Craig Shaw Gardner (quote, page 62)

A. Jones Manure Hauling was a manure-hauling company owned by A. Jones in Hill Valley. The company was known to have been in business by 1885. By 1931, the company had been rebranded as D. Jones Manure Hauling.


In 1885, after a duel between Marty McFly and Buford Tannen, the latter was knocked unconscious by several punches and collapsed — straight into a wheelbarrow of manure. These meetings with manure would be a tradition continuing throughout the generations of Tannens.
