Rep. Mike Levin Celebrates Earth Day by Honoring Local Environmentalist Ryan Hickman as April Constituent of the Month

Oceanside, CA – Today, U.S. Representative Mike Levin (D-CA) announced that Ryan Hickman, a 13-year-old resident of San Juan Capistrano, is his April Constituent of the Month. To celebrate Earth Day and National Volunteer Month, Rep. Levin is proud to recognize the remarkable work Ryan is doing to protect our planet and oceans and contribute to this unique and beautiful district.

At the age of three, Ryan started bringing bottles and cans to his local recycling center with his father. He then began asking his neighbors and friends for their recyclables. Now, Ryan is leading recycling efforts around the world and has been internationally recognized for his recycling company’s work, including by Time Magazine and the Global Child Prodigy Awards. To date, Ryan has passionately and tirelessly worked to recycle over 1.5 million cans and bottles, preventing them from entering our waterways and oceans.

See below for Rep. Levin’s statement recognizing Ryan Hickman in the Congressional Record:

“Madam Speaker, it is my great honor to recognize San Juan Capistrano resident Ryan Hickman as my April Constituent of the Month. Ryan began recycling for his family at the early age of three, and since then he has grown his passion to helping people all over world recycle and be better stewards of the planet.

“Growing up, Ryan pursued his passion of preventing bottles and cans from reaching the ocean, and he now leads clean ups all over the world. To this day, Ryan spends a part of every week sorting through cans and bottles from his customers and getting them ready to take to the recycling center. I am proud he has combined his passion of recycling and protecting the environment with volunteerism to support our community and conserve its beauty.

“During National Volunteer Month and on Earth Day, I am proud to celebrate the exceptional work of individuals like Ryan Hickman who volunteer their time and contribute to our unique and beautiful district. I’m so grateful for CA-49 residents who dedicate their lives to the betterment of our residents and planet, and I’m proud to honor Ryan Hickman as my April Constituent of the Month.”

Representative Levin’s Constituent of the Month program recognizes outstanding North County San Diego and South Orange County Residents who have gone above and beyond to help their neighbors, give back to their community, and represent the best of our country. Rep. Levin’s March Constituent of the Month was local Olympic Gold Medalist Kaillie Humphries. His February Constituents of the Month were Cynthia and W.B. May, veterans and owners of Cynthia’s Artistic Expressions in Oceanside.

    Today the Anaheim Ducks are auctioning team autographed green jerseys and all the proceeds go to Project3R! Visit anaheimducks.com/ingameauctions or Text DUCKS to 76278 to enroll!
    I had a super fun time last night at the Ducks/Kings game. They gave me a Community Hero Award and I was on the Jumbotron telling people how to be better at recycling. They gave me an official team jersey with my name on it and was an amazing night talking to fans and going out on the ice for my award. I wanted to say thank you again to all the Ducks and Kings fans who joined us a few weeks ago for the Long Beach clean up event we had. We cleaned up the beach and together picked up nearly 500 lbs of trash!
    Hockey season is almost over but I’ll be wearing this jersey next season when I’m watching the Ducks play in 2023. Go Ducks!

    So far Spring Break has been awesome! Yesterday I had two pro hockey teams supporting my Project3R beach clean up event in Long Beach, CA! The Anaheim Ducks and the LA Kings and their fans joined forces with me and we cleaned up nearly 500 lbs of trash from the sand in Long Beach! Thank you Wing Lam and Wahoo’s Fish Taco for feeding us and thank you to everyone who made this happen. It was great to meet everyone and I can’t wait to do it again. I’m going to featured at the Kings/Ducks game in Anaheim on Apr 19th so I hope everyone comes and sees the game and says hi.

    San Clemente T-Street Beach Clean Up 3/26

    Thank you everyone who came out this past weekend and cleaned up T-Street Beach with us! We picked up close to 150lbs of trash and we had nearly 200 people show up to help! This is the first time we’ve done a big clean up at this beach and it worked out great. Lots of parking and easy access to the beach. I’m sure we’ll be back again to this location. I posted a lot of pics of the event here: https://www.facebook.com/ryansrecycling/

    Today I passed the 1,500,000 mark for total cans and bottles recycled! I couldn’t have done it without my friends at El Niguel Country Club and all the awesome people that call me to pick up their cans and bottles each week. You don’t have to be all recycle crazy like me – even recycling what you can daily makes a big difference. Thank you everyone! I have a lot of things in the works for 2022 and I can’t wait to share with everyone.
