Nashville Scene’s 2011 People Issue features the stunning Nicole Kidman on its cover, but the person that caught our eye was The Entrepreneur, Gunner Sweeney. At a very green age of seven, Gunner has started his own business, along with the help of his parents, to fill a gap in Nashville’s recycling movement. Twice per month, Gunner’s Glass Recycling picks up bottles in the urban neighborhoods of East Nashville, Germantown and the 12South district. Gunner’s entrepreneurial spirit and enjoyment of recycling has warranted a successful 18-month old business with plans to expand.
