Our Trip to the Moretown Landfill

On a cold and snowy morning, our class toured our local landfill to see where all of our community trash ends up! We were surprised to see a very large hill that is buried trash! The hill was actually a 40 foot hole in the year 2006- that is amazing! We learned that the landfill converts some of the trash into electricity and could even produce more electricity with another converter. The electricity it currently produces powers over 2000 homes! We also saw the recycling area and an area where tires, clothes, computers and other recyclables are collected.
