Featuring the Book:Where Do Recyclable Materials Go? by Sabbithy Persaid
Interest Level:Grades Pre K - 2


Where Do Recyclable Materials Go? (Grades Pre K-2) is a story that begins when Bubbles, the dog, chases after the recycling truck, causing Tiana and her family to go on a search to the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). Along the way, they learn about recycling, and see how papers, plastics, metals, and glass are collected, sorted, and baled, and then sent to be made into new products. Teachers will learn about MRFs in Montgomery County, and the importance of getting more families to recycle to save natural resources. Teachers will create props and a storytelling center to use in retelling the story. Participants will receive a copy of the book and other resources to use in teaching their students about recycling.
