WOW! At 11, This Boy Runs a Successful Recycling Company

At the age of 11, I was well aware of the three Rs: recycle, reduce, and reuse. I was instructed to recycle everything I could, to decrease the amount of waste I produced, and to reuse anything before discarding it. However, one 11-year-old child has gone it a step further by establishing his own recycling business. Passion affects people differently and at different times.

Ryan Hickman’s passion in recycling began when he was very young. His father took him to a recycling center when he was three years old to drop off some cans for recycling. Ryan was so taken with the procedure and having so much fun that he told his parents that he’d like to assist his neighbors recycle as well.His major idea was to provide his neighbors bags in which to put their recyclables and then collect those recyclables for his neighborhood.

It didn’t take long for his concept to catch on. Ryan’s Recycling Company was founded in 2012 as a result of this. Isn’t that a good name for his company?Some children lose interest in their hobbies as they grow older, but Ryan appears to have doubled down and become even more enthusiastic about recycling.”It takes 90 years for a can to break down,” Hickman said in an interview with In The Know. “A plastic bottle takes 600 years to degrade.” A glass bottle takes one million years to decompose.”

His business has progressively expanded, and he now has consumers all around Orange County, California. Every week, he spends a few minutes going through all of the recycling that he receives from his clients in order to get it ready for the recycling facility. He’s recycled over a million cans thus far.”I started recycling when I was 3.5 years old and have recycled over 1 million cans and bottles.” “I’m 11 now, so that’s 8 years of recycling,” Ryan explained.

“What keeps me motivated to keep recycling is simply receiving letters and emails from all over the world thanking me and encouraging me to keep recycling,” Ryan explains.Recycling offers numerous advantages. Recycling has other advantages apart from merely being better for the environment. Here are some quick recycling facts:Ryan’s Recycling Company’s tale originally went viral in 2016 and continues to captivate people all over the world.
