Keep Odessa Beautiful was celebrating Texas Recycles Day Saturday by collecting a lot more than the usual recycling items.
In particular, volunteers were on hand to help gather up larger items that they usually can't accept.
"TV's, large bulky electronics,. old printers, computers," Sarah Natai of Keep Odessa Beautiful told Big 2. "We're also taking old mattresses. Furniture, recliners, old mattresses."
People were actually lining up down the street for a chance to drop bulkier items off at the event.
Now Keep Odessa Beautiful will send many of the items off, so components can be recycled.
