“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” takes on new meaning at this museum, which displays the Temple of Trash, a sculpture made entirely of rubbish, and encourages visitors to make their own trashy pieces of art. Interactive, kid-friendly exhibitions highlight the 3 Rs: reduce, reuse, and recycle. A skybox viewing area on the second floor offers a bird’s-eye view of just how garbage gets sorted and recycled. crra.org
