Trash Collection

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

The Green Teens visited the Sims Municipal Recycling Plant in Brooklyn last Saturday. During the visit, the Green Teens were taught what happens to recyclables after they reach the recycling plant. The Green Teens received a tour of the plant including the different machines which sort the recyclables. They learned  half of the recyclables are still being thrown in the trash which ends up in landfills. After the tour the Green Teens completed different fun and educational activities. The activities included spinning the wheel of recycling jobs, sorting through different types of recyclables and watching a magnet seperate ferrrous and  non ferrous metals.
