The bi- annual clean-up event was held last month, as part of the partnership between Community Environmental Services and PDX. The event allows vendors to donate odd items that are no longer in use, allowing any airport employee to take home what they want. The items included useful things like old electronic equipment, along with some ornaments like holiday decorations and mannequin torsos. Items left behind are donated to local non-profits or properly recycled.  Last fall, they say the program helped keep 15 tons of trash out of a landfill.
