Trash and Recycling for Kids

What is trash and recycling?


 
Every day, millions of people throw away the things that they don't want anymore. It might be broken, maybe it's been replaced by something new or it could be something that's been used or emptied. 

Trash
is something that cannot be used again. It goes into the trash cart and then is collected and taken to the landfill. 


Recycling
is something that can be used again! It must be rinsed out or folded and then put in the recycling cart. It then gets collected and goes to the recycling center.

The City of Manassas would like to thank Girl Scout Troop 1412 
from Washington State for doing their homework and finding a cool link to learn more about trash. Check this out:
A Kid's Guide to Reducing, Reusing and Recycling Waste.
