Elementary students visit La Crosse County Landfill

Students learn to be eco-friendly

Elementary students visit La Crosse...

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Local elementary students spent part of the day learning how to be eco-friendly at the county landfill.

Six busloads of Summit Elementary students, from kindergarten through fifth grade, made their way through the La Crosse County Landfill.

La Crosse County officials say the visit helps show students how garbage does not disappear after throwing it away.

"We're hoping to teach them that this is 'away.' When they throw their garbage away it goes someplace and it has an impact. It has an impact on their lives and their environment,” said La Crosse County Sustainability Coordinator Nick Nochols.

The dozens of students visited the household hazardous materials facility, the drop off area, the ReStore and landfill area.
