Youngsters at a West Norfolk school had a 'rubbish' lesson in which they were taught the benefits of recycling.
As part of recycle week, 75 pupils at Hillcrest School, in Downham Market, were shown how a council bin lorry works by Katie Shaw, contract supervisor for Kier.
Ms Shaw said: 'The children were very well behaved and seemed really fascinated to learn how their recycling is taken away, and what happens to it. There were some very tough questions.'
Some of the children were lucky enough to sit inside the lorry and had the opportunity to see how the hi-tech vehicle is operated.
Hillcrest School headteacher Matthew Try said: 'It was a positive Recycle Week experience to see a bin lorry in action, and to be able to ask probing questions about recycling.

'Our pupils all got leaflets and stickers to read in school and to take home, so we now have a clearer understanding and greater interest in recycling.'
