Hey, look at what I’ve got! A garbage truck toy! Oh! A real garbage truck! Are you ready to learn about
garbage truck and recycling today? Yeah, let’s go! Now, let’s learn some of the parts
of the garbage truck. Come on! First things first, the cab! Hoo! Look at who it is!
It’s Tony! -Hey, Tony!
-Hi, kids! Uh! Ha, ha. That, the cab, it’s where
the garbage truck driver sits and steers the garbage truck! Woah! Ha, ha.
It’s so high though. How do they get up there? Oh, let me show you. Come on. These are the steps. Ha, ha. That’s so fun.
I love garbage trucks. Woah! Look at right here!
You know what this is, it’s a fire extinguisher just in case
if there is any fire near or on the garbage truck. Garbage trucks are really safe, you’ll soon learn that
cause let me teach ya. Here are some more safety features
of the garbage truck. Look! You know what these are? They are tire chains. Just in case if the road gets
really icy and slippery. You rap them around the tires so then
the garbage truck can drives 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. Oh! Look, a spill kit!
Another safety feature. This yellow bag contains absorbent pats
just in case if there is 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, right, come here!
Look! Ha, ha. Air bags!
Watch this! Woah. Did you see that? The garbage truck just lower
because of those air bags and it used those air bags
right before you dump. And look… this is how you dump the recycling
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. Hey, come here.
Ha, ha. Watch this. This is the grabber arm.
It goes… It’s like a claw. It grabs the can,
pulls it in, brings it up and dumps it into the hopper. Look! The hopper up there!
And then it gets pushed into the compression body right here,
and then it gets compressed really tight and then it gets dumped
out of the back like I said. Woah, I love garbage trucks! 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 through it away. Stuff like kitty litter, bubble gum, or even like a dirty dipper. Phew! You only use that stuff once
and then you through 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
I brought from home to recycle today. Oh, look, a milk jug. That’s plastic,
you can recycle plastic. And then, a tin can. An aluminum can. Uh, plastic bags. Oh, a spray bottle.
That’s plastic. Uh, a glass bottle. And even a cardboard box. 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. Ok, here we go. Bright vest, bright hard hat
and safety glasses. And, suspenders. Now that we have all the recyclable
materials out of the truck now we get them sorted.
This is going to be fun! All the recyclable materials come up
the conveyable and then they need to be sorted because there are so many
different kinds like paper, plastic, cardboard, aluminum, tin.
There are 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 they get sorted it out
to one type of material like this cardboard, it then
gets crashed and compacted 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 the semi. That was so much fun seeing inside
of a real recycling facility. Now, let me turn up those tunes
so we can dance to and sing my garbage truck song. Garbage trucks Garbage trucks. Driven through the town,
picking cans above the ground, garbage trucks. Sometimes when I wake up early in
the morning I here a monster sound. I look at the window
and there’s a garbage truck picking cans above the ground. It empties the can and puts it
back down and drives away so loud. Garbage trucks. Garbage trucks. Driven through the town,
picking cans above the ground, garbage trucks. The garbage man drives up
in the garbage truck and takes that garbage up. He dumps it in the back
so that it can be crushed but he drives out to the dump. He backs up to a pile above a trash
from the town and dumps the whole thing out. Garbage trucks. Garbage trucks. Driven through the town,
picking cans above the ground, garbage trucks. They come in many colors. Some are blue, some are brown
and some are green. And wouldn’t you know it? There are some that can pick up
recycle bins. Garbage trucks. Garbage trucks. Driven through the town,
picking cans above the ground, garbage trucks. Garbage trucks. Garbage trucks. Driven through the town,
picking cans above the ground, garbage trucks. Sheesh, Louise! This video had
a lot of great information. Today we learned about garbage trucks, recycling trucks and recycling. If you liked this video and you want
to watch more of my videos all you’ve got to do is search
for my name. Do you know my name? Yeah, it’s Blippi.
Let’s spell it together. B-L-I… P-P-I! Blippi, that’s my name!
Good job! Alright, see you soon! Bye!
