The Recycle Machine
By: GSLC Posted On: 2009-08-04

Personnel:
4 Cubs. In addition, another is hidden inside the machine.

Equipment:
Large box made to look like, a recycle machine: other items mentioned.

Jack:
Hey look, guys, a recycle machine!

Jim:
Let’s try it out! (Turns switch on)

Bob:
Let’s see what it does with this rusty, old pocketknife. (Drops it into machine. Machine
makes noise and shakes, then out comes a new, shiny pocketknife.)

All Boys:
Wow, it works Fantastic!

Tom:
Maybe it can recycle this old, torn handkerchief. (Drops it in and the machine shakes and
rattles and turns out a new hanky.)

Jim:
That’s really great! Here, machine, here’s an old, broken pencil for you. Drops it in and the
machine performs giving out a new one.)

Bob:
It’s your turn. Jack.

Jack:
I wonder how this things works. (Steps up, peers inside, and the machine pulls him in.)

Jack:
Help!

Other Boys:
Oh no! What should we do? (All look worried)

The machine finally makes a very loud noise and out pops Jack. A sign on him reads REJECT.)

Tom:
Look! He has a sign around his neck. It says ‘REJECT’. A Cub Scout’s spirit is too strong
and durable to ever be worn out.

Jack:
Remember, to help save our American resources, follow this motto

All Boys:
Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without!
