Wastes—Educational Materials

Picture of the Garbage Gremlin getting moved out of the dumpster and grumbling about finding a new home.
The trashmen begin to empty the dumpster in their truck and they see the Garbage Gremlin in the dumpster. The man yells, “Frank, get a load of what's living in the garbage.” Frank tells the Garbage Gremlin, “C’mon Pal. Give it up. Everything goes in the truck.” The Garbage Gremlin begins packing trash into a suitcase and grumbling, “I've been thrown out again! Where will I find enough garbage for a new home?”
