Retired fisherman Bobby Henderson is helping a faraway Habitat for Humanity project by picking up bottles and cans from ditches and roadsides near his western P.E.I. community of Northport.

He's collected over 8,000 since March, not counting the ones other people bring him to redeem for cash through Prince Edward Island's Beverage Container Program, designed to discourage littering.
