Robert Rideout is one of those true characters you find in every city around the world. Robert survives by recycling other peoples laziness. He travels the streets of the city from the hottest days of the summer to the coldest nights of the winter. He picks up and recycles beverage containers, bringing them in his shopping cart to the ridiculously out of the way government recycling centres.

I have allot of respect for Robert and others like him who make a living out of our lack of respect for the environment and our laziness.

It is not easy pushing that basket up the hills of St. John's. Maybe someone with a pickup will occasionally offer to help Robert deliver his treasure the 5km to the Green Depot.

"Sony R1, ISO 160, f/3.2, 40/10 sec. on a tripod but his eyes are blurry from blinking.

Thank you Robert.
