There Goes a Garbage Truck
Join honorary trash-collectors Becky and Dave as they explore the exciting world of sanitation. This live-action video is filled with garbage trucks of all shapes and sizes, including street sweepers, recycling vehicles, and the huge behemoths that empty dumpsters. There is even a visit to a recycling plant. The enthusiastic and likable hosts provide a clear explanation of each piece of machinery, and real sanitation workers tell kids about their jobs. Information is balanced with fun, as Becky and Dave also manage to get into trouble. Their silly antics, such as forgetting to put the break on a garbage truck and then chasing it as it rolls slowly down the street, will have children laughing out loud. In addition to learning lots of facts and having a few chuckles, kids will also come away with a clear message about the importance of recycling. A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at perennially popular topic.
