“Thank you for teaching our class about the landfill. I thought the machine that heated the methane gas up to 1200 degrees was cool. We couldn’t believe how much garbage the landfill collects in a year. It’s interesting how roof shingles get turned into asphalt roads. I learned a lot!”

“Thank you for teaching my class about the landfill. I learned that they bury garbage. There is a lot of garbage collected in one day. I did not know that there was layers of material before they put garbage in the ground, so they do not pollute the water. I also learned that the garbage trucks are weighed and are charged to empty their garbage. It’s interesting that you keep old bikes for the Rescue Mission and sometimes give high schools old engines to use for class. I had a fun field trip.”
