Recycle City

on November 12, 2010

Our playgroup is awesome. Not only are the moms great but there are always fun activities going on. This past week we took a trip to Recycle City to learn about recycling and trash. It was super fun and the kids had a great time.

When we first arrived, the kids got to watch the trash trucks dump their loads and listened to our guide explain how they sort out the recycle bags. It was pretty gross watching all the stuff come out of the back of the trucks. Surprisingly, it didn’t stink all that bad in the room we were in which overlooked the dumping area. Many of the kids were having fun playing “eye spy” with the trash. We saw pumpkins and more. They also played a video about recycling. Honestly, can’t tell you much about it other than it featured dinosaurs. Must have been memorable, huh?

We then headed out to put sort the recycling that we brought into the correct containers. We then walked over to the huge scale where they weigh loads that people come to drop off. The entire group climbed up on the scale and got weight. 2200 pounds!!!! I blame the excess on the pregnant moms in our group!

It was a super fun time and Emily really enjoyed herself. Zachary, well, he was happy to be out of the house. Thanks playgroup moms for a fun and educational trip!
