4206 Recycling Truck is a City set released in 2012. It contains 297 pieces to build a recycling truck, several recycling bins, a forklift, and three minifigures.

Description[edit | edit source]

Another view of the recycling truck.

The set comprises several models, including a recycling truck, several recycling bins on a storage rack, and a mini forklift. The recycling truck contains a bright green colour-scheme, and consists of a cab and a flatbed on which to place the recycling containers. Space for a minifigure to be seated inside is included, as is a pair of rearview mirrors and a steering wheel. In the front is featured a piece with a sticker reading "CITY", as well as grille decorations. A license plate is featured underneath. Atop the cab is placed two orange warning lights, as well as a pair of signal horns.

The forklift is built with a yellow and black colour-scheme, and contains space to seat a minifigure inside. A arm-lift is featured in the front of the vehicle, and contains a pair of "forks" with which to lift the recycling bins. The cab contains a openable roll-cage, which enables a minifigure to be easily placed inside. A license plate is featured on the front.

The recycling bins are all built similarly, but with slightly different colour-scheme. A red-themed bin is indicated to be used only for glass bottles, a yellow one only for aluminium cans, and a blue one for papers. The bins all have a small opening in the front, through which residents of LEGO City may place their recyclables in the appropriate bin. Signs on top of the containers also indicate which bin is for which substance. The bins are all placed on top of a large, flat grey model, which serves as a holder. A small green bin is placed behind the large bins, and is assumedly for other garbage. Two tan fences are places on either side of the bins.

Three minifigures are also included with the set. The first minifigure, that of a lady citizen of LEGO City, is not exclusive to the set. She features light grey pants, a red shirt. and a brown ponytail. Her shirt features printing suggesting a bow, as well as a white undershirt. Printing suggesting a beaded necklace is also featured. Her face features printing suggesting a smiling mouth with lips, along with a pair of eyes with eyelashes.

The second minifigure is that of a driver for the recycling truck. He features orange pants, a blue shirt, and a red cap. His shirt features printing including elements suggestive of a recycling worker's garb, including orange overalls and a blue turtleneck sweater. His overalls contain a pocket, inside which is placed a pen. His face includes printing which suggests a smiling mouth and silver sunglasses over his eyes.

The third minifigure is that of a driver for the forklift. He features dark tan pants, an orange shirt, and a blue cap. His shirt contains printing suggesting elements such as high-visibility reflective tape, pockets, a blue turtleneck undershirt, a zipper, and a pen inside one of his pockets. His face includes printing suggesting a smirking, determined face, with a smirking mouth, dimples, and creased eyes.

Also included in the set is a red wheelbarrow, a black shovel, a brown broom, and several pieces of recycling to place inside the recycling bins.

Background[edit | edit source]

Recycling is where certain materials, such as paper, can be combined and turned into a new product. This means that fresh materials can be used for other purposes, and results in less pollution and energy usage. People can come to recycling drop-off centres to put their recyclable materials into large bins. At set times, or when the bins are full, forklifts load them onto recycling trucks, and the recycling trucks then take them to recycling plants.
