                                                 The Five R’s of Responsible
                                                         Waste Management
The “Five R’s” are reducing, repairing, reusing, recycling, and rotting. If you commit to these five actions, there is little that must be
thrown away. Choosing to follow the Five R’s ensures that resources are saved and/or reused, and the volume of waste is reduced.
By keeping these actions in mind when purchasing, using, and disposing of materials, you will have done more than your share
to keep our county clean and beautiful.

                                                   Hazardous Waste
The best way to reduce the amount of hazardous chemicals stored in your home is to buy only the products that you will need for
one job at a time and use them up completely. Avoid storing large amounts of toxic materials by using what you can and giving
the rest away to friends, family and neighbors to use properly.

Remember, by making informed consumer decisions when buying toxic products we can reduce the amount that needs to be
disposed of. There are many alternatives to buying and using traditional chemical products. Most of these alternatives work just as
well as the original, but are much less toxic! Here are a few ideas:

     eliminating junk mail at its source. Paper used for junk mail
     is often virgin paper that has no post consumer content. Junk
     mail often has a low recycle value and may contain toxic
     inks. Although it can be recycled to some extent, stopping
     junk mail from the source will have the greatest overall ef-
     fect on saving landfill space. The average American receives
     close to a ton of junk mail per year. Each ton of recycled
     paper saves 17 trees and 3 cubic yards of landfill space.
     Stopping this waste of paper could have a tremendous im-
     pact on global environmental quality.

     Ways to Reduce Junk Mail

     • Contact the sender of the mail and request they
       stop.

     • Contact your existing creditors and request that
       they not distribute your name to other organi-

     Oil Filters
        and Oil
     There are many auto parts retailers and service stations around the county that will accept your used motor oil. Certified oil
     collection facilities may even pay for it by the gallon. Please call your nearest location for specific details.

     Facts About Oil Recycling

     • One quart of improperly disposed oil can pollute over 250,000 gallons of
       drinking water.
     • American Petroleum Institute re-refined oil has been proven to be equal to or
       better than oil made from virgin base stock.
     • It takes only one gallon of used oil to make 2.5 quarts of re-refined oil but it
       takes 42 gallons of crude oil to make 2.5 quarts of virgin oil!
     • Don’t forget to buy re-refined oil! It encourages oil recycling programs to grow
       and cuts our consumption of non-renewable resources.

     Bottles and Cans
            Are Not Trash!
     Californians are paying more for recycling this year, than last year, and still we are recycling less. The California Redemption Value
     (CRV) that you pay as a deposit when you purchase a beverage in a bottle or can was doubled this year with the passage of As-
     sembly Bill 28. Currently, the California Department of Conservation shows a statewide beverage container recycling rate of only
     58% for the year 2002, meaning that of the 18 Billion bottles and cans sold in California, 10 Billion were recycled. The left over
     8 billion are in our oceans, waterways, forests, deserts and landfills, and may never be collected for recycling.

     Become a
       Better Recycler

     When you go and enjoy the great outdoors of California, and you take beverages with you, remember to save your bottles and
     cans for recycling.

     Take bottles and cans to a local recycler to get your deposit back.

     Collect bottles and cans for donation to a local community school or organization with a recycling program.

     Place recyclables in your curbside recycling container. If you don’t want to collect the money that you paid for the deposit, at least
     place the bottle and can into your curbside recycling container at home. The contents in your curbside container are taken to a
     Material Recovery Facility (MRF) where the materials are recovered for recycling. Recyclable materials placed in the trash are not
     recycled at the landfill. No one will be picking through the more than 7,400 tons of waste entombed in Riverside County landfills
     each day.

     Waste that is placed in your curbside solid waste trash will go straight to the landfill for burial.
     Remember...Recycle. It’s good for the bottle. It’s good for the can...
     It’s good for Riverside County. Do your part and help reduce needless waste going to the landfill.
