About the Book

Read and find out about what happens to our trash in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.

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.

This picture book is filled with fun charts and diagrams to explain how we deal with the problem of too much trash. Activities throughout the book empower kids to help the environment, whether it's by separating trash from recycling or using a lunch box instead of a paper bag.

This is a clear and appealing science book for early elementary age kids, both at home and in the classroom. Both text and artwork were vetted for accuracy by Robin Woods, formerly of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Dr. William Rathje, founder of the Garbage Project and professor emeritus at the University of Arizona, and Thomas Frankiewicz.
