BES fifth graders took a trip to the Nelson County Landfill and the Guthrie Opportunity Center on Monday. Students learned many interesting facts about the landfill, and while the 3 Rs were discussed (reduce, reuse, recycle), they found out that the most important is to REDUCE the amount of garbage we send to the landfill. At the Guthrie Opportunity Center, students were able to see their recycling program and specifically what items can be recycled there. They were then able to also take a tour to see the many opportunities the GO Center provides. What great trip--it was informative and it provided inspiration to be an active citizen in our community!
