Follow that garbage truck!
...to the landfill to see how trash keeps piling up...to the incinerator to see how trash can be turned into energy ... to the recycling center to see how a soda bottle can be turned into a flowerpot. Filled with graphs, charts, and diagrams, Where Does the Garbage Go? explains how we deal with the problem of too much trash and provides ideas for easy ways to be a part of the solution.
Trash doesn't just disappear after the garbage truck takes it away. In this book, young readers follow the garbage truck to the landfill and the incinerator and then visit the recycling center to see how glass, metal, paper and plastic are recycled. Perfect for budding environmentalists. Full-color illus.
