Last Wednesday, instead of our usual play group at the park, we all took a tour of the Marborg Center. A recycling center to be exact. Take a minute to imagine the smell rising from mixed recycles + several large construction trucks loudly going about their business. Yes, that combo did equal my kiddos' idea of heaven. The tour turned out to primarily be us standing on this platform watching all the action...the kids stood their for 30 minutes. For the most part they didn't move, only changing positions if they needed to get a better view. Those men up there, it is their job to sort the recyclables by hand. Each group of two men along the line pulls a different item out of the mix. The first set were looking for anything metal. Those items were then thrown down to the area below them. The color books at the end of the tour were just the icing on the cake.
