The singing, dancing Junkyard Pirates puppets, made from recycled materials, enthralled early childhood students at Whittier and West. They sail the urban seas on the lookout for trash to feed the dreaded, smelly monster Landfill. Landfill allows them to live on his land as long as they keep bringing him trash so he can grow larger and larger. The pirates sail into a recycling center, but the owner, Nellie, catches them and convinces them to work against Landfill. Nellie enlists the audience's help through song and story, and learning about the 4 Rrrrr's: Recycle - To process used or waste material so that it can be used again; Reduce the Use - To use less electricity, less paper products; Repair - To restore by replacing a part or putting together what is torn or broken; Reuse - To use again, especially after salvaging or special treatment.
