Our Commitment to Building

Sustainable Communities

The 8-year old recycler who’s saving the world, CNN Young Wonder Ryan Hickman started his recycling journey in 2012 at the age of 3, by visiting a local recycling center and cashing in a few small bags of cans and bottles. At that moment Ryan decided that recycling was his new-found passion. Today, Ryan travels all over the country with Valet Living to set the standard in recycling by sharing his passion with property managers and residents nationwide! Valet Living and Ryan are excited to bring recycling awareness and education to the multifamily industry with his “Message in a Bottle” events, where Ryan speaks to residents at Valet Living communities on the importance of recycling.

“There is an increasing focus on maximizing waste diversion, and we are excited to support the multifamily community in setting the standard for recycling.”

– Heath Hallada, Vice President of Sustainability
