DOWN IN THE DUMPS is the story of a root-beer can, butter tub, old newspaper and milk jug who want to get out of the dumps and go to recycling. They have dreams of becoming something new. Along the way, they make friends with a discarded rag doll, who just wants to go back home to her family. However, to escape the dumps, they must get past the Diva Dragon and the Rat Patrol. Yikes!
