Gymnastics Facility On Wheels Rolls Into Tyler Recycling Center

The Tyler Recycling Collection Center added something new today.   A school bus, called the Tumblebus has been turned into a gymnastics facility on wheels. The Tumblebus is at the recycling center for its Color It Beautiful event, which teaches children about recycling. To get on the bus, all children have to do is draw a picture on something that will be recycled.

"They get hand eye coordination and learn how to think laterally, which prepares them for reading readiness, and it's a lot of fun and keeps them physically fit," said Keep Tyler Beautiful member Jannie Moore.   

The Tumblebus will be at the Tyler Recycling Collection Center the last Saturday of every month.
