No Trash Poem

Please don't throw away much trash
Or the landfill into the clouds will crash.
Let's take a trip to see how you
Can find a way to help too!

Our first stop is the Recycling Center.
Get your papers, cans, and bottles ready when you enter.
Dump them into the recycling bin
To become new products we put things in.

Now we'll go to a composting pile.
Put in rinds, grass, and leaves-that makes bugs smile.
It creates new soil so plants can grow
And reduces the garbage that you throw.

Last stop is a stinky old landfill.
All the birds and animals it could kill
When it pollutes the water that we have to share
Until people like you start to care. Copyright 2007 sponsor Okidata Printer Cartridge
