If your kids love trucks, they might have fun on this short adventure. On Construction Circle in Irvine, there are several businesses with lots of trucks coming and going. You will see lots of mixer trucks filling up at the three cement companies that are located in this area. You will also see lots of trash trucks dumping trash at one of the two Orange County Waste Management transfer stations. The trash will then be sorted by large skid steers and the non-recyclable items will get hauled to the landfill. There are also a couple of companies that rent heavy equipment, so you can see excavators, loaders, dozers, and more.
I want you to know that you cannot stop anywhere on this street. But just drive around slowly a couple of times so you can see the action.
Since it only takes a couple of minutes to drive around, I normally pair this adventure with a Costco stop next door. In fact, The District is only one block away where you can find Costco, Target, T.J. Max, Whole Foods, Lowe’s, Office Depot, PetSmart and lots of restaurants.
I know this is a silly outing and my husband suggested I didn’t share it. But I bet I can find at least one of you that has a kid that would like this…or so I hope.
The Waste Management address is 16122 Construction Cir. E, Irvine, CA 92606. You can Google this address and then you will find the other businesses on the same street.
