  • Hey, look at what I've got!

  • A garbage truck toy!

  • Oh! A real garbage truck!

  • Are you ready to learn about garbage truck and recycling today?

  • Yeah, let's go!

  • Now, let's learn some of the parts of the garbage truck. Come on!

  • First things first, the cab!

  • Hoo! Look at who it is! It's Tony!

  • -Hey, Tony! -Hi, kids!

  • Uh! Ha, ha. That, the cab, it's where the garbage truck driver sits

  • and steers the garbage truck!

  • Woah! Ha, ha. It's so high though.

  • How do they get up there?

  • Oh, let me show you. Come on.

  • These are the steps.

  • Ha, ha. That's so fun. I love garbage trucks.

  • Woah! Look at right here! You know what this is,

  • it's a fire extinguisher just in case if there is any fire near

  • or on the garbage truck.

  • Garbage trucks are really safe,

  • you'll soon learn that cause let me teach ya.

  • Here are some more safety features of the garbage truck. Look!

  • You know what these are?

  • They are tire chains.

  • Just in case if the road gets really icy and slippery.

  • You rap them around the tires so then the garbage truck can drives straight

  • and not slip and slide.

  • Oh, look! Reflective tape.

  • This is for light to hit and bounce off

  • and make the truck really bright at night.

  • Garbage trucks are so safe.

  • Oh! Look, a spill kit! Another safety feature.

  • This yellow bag contains absorbent pats just in case if there is

  • any ewy and icky things on the ground that you can't scoop or broom up

  • into the garbage truck. So you use the spill kit.

  • Oh, come back here, I have something really cool to show you.

  • Oh, right, come here! Look! Ha, ha.

  • Air bags! Watch this!

  • Woah.

  • Did you see that?

  • The garbage truck just lower because of those air bags

  • and it used those air bags right before you dump.

  • And look...

  • this is how you dump the recycling goods out of the garbage truck.

  • This opens up because these hydraulic cylinders push the back door

  • really open and then it dumps all the compressed goods out of it.

  • But first, we need some stuff in it. How do you get it in there?

  • The coolest part. Let me show you. Come on.

  • Hey, come here. Ha, ha.

  • Watch this.

  • This is the grabber arm. It goes...

  • It's like a claw. It grabs the can, pulls it in, brings it up

  • and dumps it into the hopper.

  • Look! The hopper up there! And then it gets pushed

  • into the compression body right here, and then it gets compressed really tight

  • and then it gets dumped out of the back like I said.

  • Woah, I love garbage trucks!

  • Now that we know the parts of a garbage truck and how it works

  • let's learn about the differences between garbage and recycling.

  • Garbage, you only can use once and then you through it away.

  • Stuff like kitty litter, bubble gum,

  • or even like a dirty dipper. Phew!

  • You only use that stuff once and then you through it away.

  • But recycling you can use it many times!

  • Because it might get melted down or just processed back into

  • the original product or something similar made out of the same material,

  • and if it can, it's recyclable.

  • Let me show you some of the things I brought from home to recycle today.

  • Oh, look, a milk jug. That's plastic, you can recycle plastic.

  • And then, a tin can.

  • An aluminum can.

  • Uh, plastic bags.

  • Oh, a spray bottle. That's plastic.

  • Uh, a glass bottle.

  • And even a cardboard box.

  • All those things you can recycle.

  • Now that we know the difference between garbage and recyclable goods,

  • let's visit a recycling facility and sort out some recyclable goods.

  • We're at the recycling facility.

  • First, we need our safety equipment on before we go inside.

  • Ok, here we go.

  • Bright vest, bright hard hat and safety glasses.

  • And, suspenders.

  • Now that we have all the recyclable materials out of the truck

  • now we get them sorted. This is going to be fun!

  • All the recyclable materials come up the conveyable

  • and then they need to be sorted

  • because there are so many different kinds like paper, plastic,

  • cardboard, aluminum, tin. There are so many!

  • Here, let's go sort some.

  • All of the recyclable goods travel down these conveyor belts,

  • workers sort them out by the different types of materials

  • and once they get sorted it out to one type of material

  • like this cardboard, it then gets crashed and compacted

  • into this tight log of one material.

  • Then a forklift comes up, picks it up and transports it

  • to a different part of the warehouse.

  • And when the material is ready to be transported onto the back of a semi

  • to go somewhere else to be recycled, a forklift loads it

  • into the back of the semi.

  • That was so much fun seeing inside of a real recycling facility.

  • Now, let me turn up those tunes so we can dance to

  • and sing my garbage truck song.

  • Garbage trucks
