More than 1,000 households participated in the 2018 ShareFest Recyclepalooza on Saturday in New Lenox.

The annual ShareFest Recyclepalooza is the county’s largest annual event, with more than 1,000 homes bringing all sorts of items from computers and TVs to lawn chemicals and old gasoline, donations for the troops, items for food pantries and worn American flags for ceremonial destruction, Marta Keane, Will County’s recycling specialist with the Land Use Department’s Resource Recovery Division, said in a news release.

"We’ve gotten a lot of good feedback on how things ran," Keane said.
