Ryan is a capable young man with a great work ethic. He is very neat, tidy and organised. He loves recycling, especially 10c containers and will spot and pick up bottles or cans absolutely anywhere.

He loves sorting as an activity, consequently he enjoys sorting his containers at the Return It Depot and he also enjoys colour sorting the 1000s of bottle lids he collects for Lids4Kids each month.

Ryan adores dogs and cats. His work with RecycleAbilities gives him the opportunity to meet and stroke many dogs while he is out on his pick-up rounds and donate to animal related charities.

Ryan enjoys building things, whether it is a Lego model or a chicken coop.

Ryan is also passionate about making kitchen boards at his local Men’s Shed from off cuts of wood destined to be dumped or destroyed.
