Free recycling on Earth Day at Chesterfield's Central Park collected a parking lot full of huge televisions, and plenty of other stuff that residents emptied out from their car trunks Saturday.
Saturday was the city's 21st celebration of Earth Day with recycling, entertainment at the city's amphitheater and vendors with goods made from recycled materials.
One contributor said seeing all "that stuff" made him think about the next time he was tempted to buy something else—as though pausing to decide whether he really needed or wanted it.
Chesterfield Patch spotted Councilman Randy Logan and one of his three daughters selecting a native Missouri tree or shrub to plant at home.
"We'll probably do that later today," Logan said, about digging the hole and planting.
The snack bar at the city's 1-year-old amphitheater was open for business Saturday, and appeared to be a gathering place as it got closer to noon.
The events were open 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. Earth Day proper was Sunday, April 22.
