A 10-year-old from Canada is making waves and setting world records for his commitment to recycling, as he has collected thousands of tabs from drinking cans.

Jace Weber, of Mildmay, Ontario, Canada, collected 3,648 lbs. of aluminum can tabs in one year. That impressive collection was good enough to earn him a Guiness World Record.

Weber began collecting the tabs in August of 2022 with his goal being to collect and recycle enough tabs to donate the money to help someone in need get a wheelchair. Weber said he was inspired by a YouTube video where a man collected tabs for many years, earned money from recycling them, and then donated everything to charity.

The collected tabs nets around $0.70 per pound from the scrap yard. All proceeds Weber earned from his achievement were donated to March of Dimes in Canada.
