Enjoy free family fun on RivCo Recycles Day 

The County of Riverside is celebrating America Recycles Day with free family fun! Join the festivities on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Resource Garden located at the Riverside County Department of Waste Resources at 14310 Frederick St., Moreno Valley.

Spend the day with us as we celebrate all the ways you can reduce, reuse and recycle with demonstrations, games, prizes and activities. There will be free drawings for prizes, held every hour, and an outdoor eating area lined with food trucks. Admission to the event is free, held in partnership with the City of Moreno Valley, and sponsored by Altura Credit Union, Burrtec, and Waste Management, Inc.

The garden and surrounding area will be filled with exhibitors demonstrating quick “how to” sessions on composting, green cleaning, vermicomposting, recycling and food waste. The Kids Activity Zone will include crafts, gardening and games made from reused materials.  Real life and interactive exhibits include the Recycle House, a make-believe house that teaches real recycling habits through play and Touch-a-Truck, where kids put on a hard hat and safety vest before climbing in the driver’s seat of some of the department’s trucks.

Families also have a chance to visit the Resource Garden which showcases a demonstration garden, worm shed, herb garden, compost demonstration area plus art and hardscape made from recycled materials. 

For more information about RivCo Recycles Day, contact the Riverside County Department of Waste Resources at (951) 486-3200 or visit www.rcwaste.org.
