    Bio: Winston might look soft and fluffy on the outside but he’s Wilma’s Beta and is in charge of keeping all the waste collection vehicles in line around the coast. Some call him the “grumpy Wasteater” because he’s often heard growling but it’s really just his stomach because he’s always hungry for mixed recycables – paper, glass, cans, plastic, he loves them all!
