Our trip to the Transfer Station and the Landfill was really interesting and the adults and children learnt lots from our tour guide, Mrs Versey.
We began our day at at Transfer Station. This is where we, or the rubbish truck, takes our rubbish and recycling. From here our rubbish and recycling is sorted. It is called the Transfer Station because our rubbish and recycling is transferred from here to its new home.

|A huge pile of rubbish|
|We loved watching the compactor. Did you know it could squash|
a bus into the size of a toy bus?
|The landfill...it is filling up fast.|
