Loyd is the first street recycler I met. Driving from Banker’s Hill to the beach, I passed a man pushing a cart flanked on every side with bags and buckets. I parked my car and walked the few blocks back to him. We talked about life and he introduced me to “canning.”

People haul their trash to the street and Loyd mines for the hidden gems within. It’s not safe, it’s not glorious, but I admired such an unexpected work ethic
