Uptown's Recycler Extraordinaire

A reader sent this photo in and comments that "Uptown will always have a successful recycling program so long as this guy is picking up discarded cans."


  1. I saw him recently. I wonder how he maneuvers that huge thing. Good for him.

  2. This guy walks by my clinic on Sheridan Road every day. He seems quite befeficient.

  3. I love this guy. I always give him my cans.

    Did I just say I give him my cans?

  4. Wow - Is that a double-decker shopping cart?

  5. Weekend,

    notice the two poles extending out behind the cross bar. That's how he steers.

    I watched him work his way down Lawrence yesterday.

    This guy is ingenious, and if he's turning a buck and helping to keep the area clean (even a little bit) by recycling discarded materials, more power to him.
