On December 12, the Sally D. Meadows Wise Guys Club went to the Vidalia Recycling Center. Vidalia City Manager Mr. Bill Torrance and The Vidalia City Clerk/Finance Director Bill Bedingfield met us. Mr. Torrance taught us that recycling is good because it keeps waste from going to the landfill. That means the city spends less money disposing of waste. It also means more room in the ground for other waste. We learned that a lot of new things are made from recycled products, and that helps the environment. After that, we ran around and saw the different bins that recycled products are put into. I decided to be careful what I throw away and recycle as much as possible. It was a great trip.
