Garbage by Robert Maass

Ages: 4-8


What happens to garbage?  How much garbage comes from fast food meals? Can you imagine not having a dump or trash collection in your neighborhood?  Certainly it would make us all more resourceful and more aware of the waste and the enormous challenge in finding safer landfill  techniques and creative recycling solutions.

GARBAGE is a photo essay journey of our garbage from pick-up to landfill and the processes involved.  

It has tips for recycling, composting and ideas for creating art from trash.
