The Earth Day 2018 Recycling Event was held Saturday, April 28, at the City Hall parking lot, 1333 N.W. Eastman Parkway.

About 1,100 cars went through the process of dropping off old electronic devices, Styrofoam, fluorescent lights and paper to be shredded.

The volunteers helping at the event, including city staff, local haulers and community members, enjoyed looking through broken items that were dropped off. An all-in-one lantern, lamp, television and radio attracted considerable interest.

Gresham's recycling event is popular every year, marking the largest public outreach event hosted by the city. Volunteers also shared recycling information with those who took part in the event.
