Rome has a problem.

Rome is a beautiful old city in Italy. Visitors come. But they hold their noses!

Stinky trash is everywhere. Dogs, rats, and birds dig in it. They spread germs.

There is no place to dump the trash. Leaders in Rome must make a plan. That could take time.


The main garbage dump for Rome closed six years ago. It had no more room. It was not safe. The company that collects Rome’s garbage is in debt. It cannot keep up. Many people in the city do not want to recycle. City leaders cannot make a good plan. Doctors warn that people could become sick. How will the city solve its trash problem? Who will help? The book of Leviticus contains many laws for Israel. Chapter 11:32-40 teaches God‘s people how to keep food and water supplies pure. He cares about all parts of His creation.
