The sound of clattering outside the window means it’s finally here: the garbage truck. Young children watch in fascination as garbage collectors empty bins at the push of a button. Flaps in the book demonstrate how the skip loader takes away construction waste, the curbside collection service picks up bulky waste items and the road sweeper cleans dirt and leaves from the gutter. Garbage collection vehicles also need to be cleaned and serviced regularly. A search-and-find page features all the vehicles and other items – can you find them?
