County Waste Resources Department to provide free Summer Recycle Camp
The Riverside County Department of Waste Resources
The Department of Waste Resources is excited to offer a free Summer Recycle Camp to Riverside County K-12 children on Saturday, June 24 from 10 am to noon. This hands-on, fun activity will have several zero waste recycling crafts for children to make from reused items like tin cans, paper, and CDs. Kids will move between stations to work on different activities like sidewalk chalk, planting succulents, making art from recycled and reused products, or salvaging stained fabric by learning to tie dye.
Information about the importance of reuse and recycling will be discussed with each craft. All participants will get to play our recycling game to see if they can make the best decision for items destined for the waste can and whether it should be recycled, donated, handled as hazardous waste or sent to the landfill. It will be a fun active event for kids to use their imagination and creativity to make something crafty from unwanted materials.
Registration is required for all participants, so reserve your seat today at Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/634815278587
This event will be outdoors in our Resource Garden and it will be a zero waste program. Participants are encouraged to bring a refillable water bottle to refill at our hydration station.
The Department of Waste Resources offers a variety of FREE environmental education classes related to waste reduction and sustainability. Class instructors provide attendees with professional learning and resources for instructional materials.
