Ryan Hickman has been running his own recycling company since he was just three years old. Through his company, Ryan’s Recycling, Ryan collects bottles and cans from his community and sorts them for recycling. This makes recycling convenient for all and prevents the aluminum, plastic, and glass products from potentially ending up in landfills or in the ocean.

In its first 7 years, Ryan’s company collected over 700,000 bottles and cans, which is equal to over 100,000 pounds of recyclable material. Today, Ryan’s Recycling continues to serve customers all over Orange County, California. Learn more about his company at the “Definition” link below.
