Trip to the bottle bank

Trip to the Bottle Bank!

When we visited the bottle bank we met the man who collects all the bottles when the bank is full. He told us all about the bottle bank. He said he collects it in his truck then all of the glass is recycled in a plant. It is crushed down into tiny pieces, melted and then used to make new bottles. He said it is very important to separate the glass into the correct colours.
We recycled some brown and clear glass.
We heard a huge CRASH when the bank of bottles was emptied into the truck!!
