Aydan Wyse has made trips over a 2,000-kilometer stretch of Australia that collects waste in yellow bags in a solo mission to save his broken life.
"I had some bad things happening … me and my ex-missus had a break-up and (other things)," he said Yahoo News Australia.

& # 39; The depression started and I knew I had to recover myself. & # 39;
Mr. Wyse started exercising and was disgusted by the amount of waste along the country roads around Clarence Valley, on the north coast of NSW.
He started picking it up and people started stopping and thanking him for his efforts.
The young father was worried about what a guardianship fight would do to his ex-girlfriend and his children, so he started traveling and continued his cleaning work.
& # 39; I started life again and have been running for two years since, & # 39; he said.
He said he has managed to build a relationship with his children since his departure and continues to do what he does to build a legacy for them.

In every city he stops at Mr Wyse, collects large yellow garbage bags, his trademark, and starts collecting waste.
If there is no waste collection point nearby, he leaves the bags along the road, but it usually doesn't take long before they are picked up by good Samaritans.
Since he started his mission, he thinks he has filled nearly 5,000 yellow garbage bags.
The young father was worried about what a guardianship fight would do to his ex-girlfriend and his children, so he started traveling and continued his clean-up actions.
He said he wants people to realize that it is not just the task of guessing to go after us.
The 34-year-old said he was overwhelmed by the support given to him by the locals who offered him food and shelter for his efforts.
Now he wants to buy his own vehicle so that he can go further and collect the garbage bags himself.
Mr. Wyse has one Go Fund Me to raise money to continue his cleaning.
