Filed Trip to the Montgomery County Recycling Center

The third grade field trip to the Montgomery County Recycling Center on Monday, June 12, 2015, was fun! We arrived after a short trip and the center’s representative, Ms. Rachel, gave us a great presentation. There is still a poster on their walls featuring former DSW fourth-graders in the presentation area (see the picture) - go German School! The kids were fascinated by the technology and atmosphere (loud and smelly!) of the sorting area; so were Ms. Eberhard and I!  We arrived back at school just in time for lunch.
Montgomery County, Maryland, has an excellent Recycling system and is a national leader in refuse concepts.
