Several shows that I allow my son to watch have episodes that involve recycling. Cars, paper, plastic, metal and several other items so he has taken it upon himself to become The Recycler. Below you can see where with the help of the The Crusher (mom) his legos have been crushed up into bales to be loaded on the truck and headed off to where ever. In the top picture he is using his hand as a grapple to load the bales.
Too bad the city that we live in took away our opportunity to recycle or we would do this for real.
