The Kan Kid

I’m a 9 year old boy who wants to clean up the world by collecting aluminum cans, plastic bottles, and glass bottles.  On a visit to my grandpa’s house in Portland, Oregon, he showed me how you can get money by taking cans and bottles to a recycling center.  They give you ten cents for every can!  I live in California and while they don’t give you that much money, it’s still important to recycle our cans and bottles.  When I got back to San Diego, I went to the beach with my piano teacher.  She wanted to have a beach clean up day with her students.  We collected at least ten buckets of garbage!  Since then, I have gone on several neighborhood clean up walks.  I collect garbage as well as cans and bottles.  I throw the garbage away and take the cans and bottles to the recycling center.  I have also been asking my family, friends, and neighbors to give me their cans to recycle.   I am saving the money I make in my bank account and donating 25% of what I make to Tabby Nation Cat Rescue.  My parents will even match my donation and my dad’s business matches that donation!  If you live in or near Rancho Bernardo (92127) and you have cans, bottles, or glass that you would like me to recycle, please contact me at  I am happy to arrange a time to pick them up. Thank you for your support!
