An environmental activist we've featured on 69 News in the past is being honored.

Jim Crater, of Recycling Services Inc. in Pottstown, Montgomery County, was recognized by the county Thursday for outstanding achievement.

For more than 40 years, Crater has run one of the most extensive residential recycling programs.

He finds new uses for everyday items. In fact, part of a scooter he made used to be an ironing board.
