Glen Ellyn residents arrived at the 2010 Recycling Extravaganza via two wheels and four…and on foot. They came with their dogs…and one rabbit. But what they left was vital to the environment in the Village of Glen Ellyn.

Residents unloaded 65 batteries, 711 eyeglasses, 21 bicycles, 105 American flags, 55 fire extinguishers, thousands of books and hundreds of pounds of used clothing – all items that might have otherwise ended up in local landfills or polluting rivers and streams.

GEL BIG PICTURE: Where does all your 2009 income tax money go?

Here's a link that will enlighten (or frighten) you to our nation's escalating national debt.

According to the U.S. NATIONAL DEBT CLOCK the Outstanding Public Debt as of 15 Apr 2010 at 12:23:29 PM GMT is:

$12,837,784,215,744.88

That's only $1,653,607,879,505.26 (that's a trillion number) more than last year. (The numbers are so large you can't do the math on a standard calculator if you include the cents!)

The estimated population of the United States is 308,198,082
