Reuse, Reduce, Recycle
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Von and Hal were Cub Scouts. They were learning to help Earth. Their den leader took them on a field trip to learn more. Where were they going?
 
2     The trip was to a recycling center. The scouts went on a bus. As they drove into the center they saw big hills.
 
3     "Wow!" the boys yelled. "Those are cool! They would be great for our sleds."
 
4     "Not really," Mr. Smith, the den leader, said. "Do you know those hills are part of the landfill?"
 
5     "What's a landfill?" Von asked.
 
6     "It's where your garbage is stored for years and years. It has nowhere else to go. They put it in big piles. Then they cover it."
 
7     "Yuck!" Hal said.
 
8     "That's right," Mr. Smith said. "You put something in the garbage. It has to go somewhere. Our town puts it here."
 
9     "That's awful. What can we do to get rid of it?" Hal asked.
 
10     Mr. Smith said, "Good question. That's what we will find out inside."
