California boy, 7, starts recycling business, saves $10K for college

Ryan Hickman began recycling bottles and cans when he was 3 and a half years old.
Ryan’s father said, “We had gone to the center with a couple of bags, and he really loved the actual act of putting all the cans and bottles into the machine and getting the money for it, and that kind of got him hooked.”
Ryan is now 7 years old. He has his own website for his business, ryan’s recycling.com. On the site you can buy one of his t-shirts, with the proceeds going to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center.
