Flush it! (to the tune of Mary had a Little Lamb)

What goes down washing machines, sinks and showers, and toilets? The water that goes down these pipes is called our wastewater.

Toilet paper, soap and germs, soap and germs, soap and germs. Toilet paper, soap and germs are in our wastewater.

Human waste and oil and food, oil and food, oil and food. Human waste and oil and food are in our wastewater.

Toothpaste, dirt and chemicals, chemicals, chemicals. Toothpaste, dirt and chemicals are in our wastewater.

Wastewater is sterilized, cleaned and treated, then released. The clean water is then released into Commencement Bay.

So please be careful what you flush, how you clean, what you rinse. Whatís in our water can pollute so think before you flush.

All these things are good for you.

If you see *paper*, pick it up and put it in its place,
R-E-C-Y-C-L-E,
R-E-C-Y-C-L-E,

Squiggly Worms (to the tune of Old McDonald had a Farm)

Our class had some little worms
In a compost bin.
All these worms made healthy soil,
In a compost bin.
With a squiggle squiggle here and a squiggle, squiggle there.
Here a squiggle, there a squiggle, everywhere a squiggle, squiggle.
Our class loved our little worms
In their compost bin.
