Did you know that the average person creates about 5 pounds of garbage a day? That’s about 1,800 pounds every year – per person! So what happens to all that garbage? Join Backpack Jack and friends as they dive into the big, stinky and amazing story of garbage. Hold your nose as we visit a landfill to discover what happens to garbage when it leaves your home.
Then we’ll visit a recycling plant to learn all the ways we can recycle and keep trash out of landfills. We’ll watch cans squashed into blocks, we’ll watch a wood chipper that makes fuel pellets for heating schools, and we’ll see the huge, powerful jaw that snaps big pieces of scrap metal into pieces. And we’ll check out an amazing car-crushing machine that flattens old cars!
C’mon, let’s go with Backpack Jack to smash some trash!
