Johnny Jennings is a true hero. He has been collecting recyclable paper products and aluminum cans since 1985 and donates ALL of the money to a children's charity that helps kids who are going through difficult situations.
To date, he has recycled enough to raise $400,000.
One of the residents of the town Johnny lives in heard about his story and shared it on Facebook.
"Mr. Jennings has worn out three trucks and countless sets of tires. In 2016, Mr. Jennings donated just enough money to make his grand total donated $400,000.00! Yes, you read that right." Her post has gone on to receive more than 18,000 likes and 45,000 shares.
She also shared Jennings' recycling "stats," which are pretty impressive:
