SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The Township of Scotch Plains hosted its annual Earth Day observance at which attendees had the opportunity to plant seeds to grow vegetables and learn lessons about recycling from Union County's "Recycling Robot," who made a special appearance. 

The event, attended by many of the Township's leaders, featured a band called Bash The Trash, which plays instruments made from recycled materials.
