We went on a tour of the Pearland Recycling Center last Saturday with Ella's daisy troop. It was pretty interesting, nothing at all like I was expecting, and we both ended up learned a lot.
Out of all the different areas we saw, Ella's favorite part was the giant paper shredder. It could shred an entire phone book in a second and into about a square inch worth of paper strips.

I love Ella's face while she was watching it work!

Definitely not our average Saturday afternoon, but pretty neat learning experience to see how the recycling center works!
