♪ It'll make you wanna shout, Blippi ♪ – Hey, look at what I got! A garbage truck toy! (gasps) A real garbage truck! Are you ready to learn
about garbage trucks and recycling today? Yeah, let's go! (upbeat music) (engine whirring) (engine humming) (engine rumbling) Now let's learn some of the
parts of the garbage truck. Come on! (laughs) First things first, the cab. Ooh! Look at who it is, it's Tony. Hey, Tony!
– Hi, kid! (horn honking) – Ooh, that, the cab, is where the garbage truck
driver sits and steers the garbage truck. Whoa! It's so high, though. How do they get up there? Let me show you.
Come on! These are the steps. (Blippi beeping) That's so fun. I love garbage trucks. Whoa, look at right here. You know what this is, it's a fire extinguisher, just in case if there's any fire near or on the garbage truck. Garbage trucks are really safe. You'll soon learn that, 'cause let me teach ya. Here's some more safety features
of the garbage truck, look. (chains jingling) You know what these are? They're tire chains, just in case if the road gets really icy and slippery, you wrap 'em around the tires so then the garbage
truck can drive straight and not slip and slide. Oh, look, reflective tape. This is for light to hit and bounce off and make the truck really bright at night. Garbage trucks are so safe. Ooh, look, a spill kit. Another safety feature.
This yellow bag contains absorbent pads just in case if there's
any ewy and icky things on the ground that you
can't scoop or broom up into the garbage truck. So you use the spill kit. Oh, come back here. I have something really cool to show you. Oh, whoa, hurry, c'mere! Look! (laughs) Air bags! Watch this! (air hissing) Whoa! Did you see that? The garbage truck just lowered
because of those airbags! And you use those airbags
right before you dump. (gasps) And look, this is how
you dump the recycled goods out of the garbage truck. This opens up because
these hydraulic cylinders push the back door really open, and then it dumps all the
compressed goods out of it. But first, we need some stuff in it. How do you get it in there? The coolest part. Let
me show you, come on! Hurry, come on! (machinery whirring) Watch this. This is the grabber arm. It goes, (squeaking) it's like a claw. It grabs the can, pulls it in, brings it up, and dumps
it into the hopper.
(gasps) Look! The hopper up there. And then it gets pushed into the compression body right here, and it gets compressed really tight, and then it gets dumped
out the back like I said. Wow, I love garbage trucks. (upbeat music) (engine rumbling) (engine whirring) (brakes squealing) (garbage rustling) (engine whirring) Now that we know the
parts of a garbage truck and how it works, let's
learn about the differences between garbage and recycling. Garbage you only can use once, and then you throw it away, stuff like kitty litter, bubble gum, or even like a dirty diaper, pee-ew! You only use that stuff once,
and then you throw it away. But recycling, you can use it many times, because it might get melted down or just processed back
into the original product or something similar made
out of the same material, and if it can, it's recyclable. Let me show you some of the
things that I brought from home to recycle today.
Oh, look a milk jug. That's plastic, you can recycle plastic. (jug banging) Then a tin can. (can clanging) An aluminum can. (can clanking) Ooh, plastic bags. Oh, a spray bottle, that's plastic. (bottle banging) Ooh, a glass bottle, (glass breaking) and even a cardboard box. (box banging) All those things you can recycle. Now that we know the difference between garbage and recyclable goods, let's visit a recycling facility and sort out some recyclable goods. We're at the recycling facility. First we need our safety
equipment on before we go inside. Here we go. Bright vest, bright hard hat, and safety glasses, and suspenders. (upbeat music) Now that we have all
the recyclable materials out of the truck, now we get to sort it. This is gonna be fun! All the recycled materials
come up the conveyor belt, and then they need to be sorted, because there's so many different kinds, like paper, plastic,
cardboard, aluminum, tin. There's so many! Here, let's go sort some. All of the recyclable goods travel down these conveyor belts. Workers sort them out by the
different types of materials.
And once it gets sorted out
to one type of material, like this cardboard, it then
gets crushed and compact into this tight log of one material. Then a forklift comes up, picks it up, and transports it to a
different part of the warehouse. And when the material is
ready to be transported onto the back of a semi to go
somewhere else to be recycled, a forklift loads it
into the back of a semi. That was so much fun seeing inside a real recycling facility. Now let me turn up those
tunes so we can dance to, and sing, my garbage truck song. (upbeat music) ♪ Garbage trucks ♪ ♪ Garbage trucks ♪ ♪ Drivin' through the town ♪ ♪ Pickin' cans up off the ground ♪ ♪ Garbage trucks ♪ ♪ Sometimes when I wake
