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. Reducing Reusing • Purchase items in reﬁllable containers and buy in bulk • Shop at and donate items to thrift stores or consider whenever possible. having a yard sale for unwanted household items • Buy products in concentrated form, such as cleaners, • Print on both sides of paper or re-use it as scratch paper. juices, and drink mixes. • When buying a new product, take into consideration its • Use a cloth bag when you go shopping for groceries. potential life span.

Additional information is available for homeowners and qualifying small businesses. 4 Reducing Household 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: Alternatives to Chemical Products • Use a cleanser with a biodegradable solvent, such as • Maintain a variety of plants in your garden to reduce the Simple Green or other water-based cleansers. chance of catastrophic infestation by a single pest species.

This is a free service to all county residents and all automotive ﬂuids are collected for proper disposal.

That percentage could be reduced by much better use of landﬁll space. 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.

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.

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. 1-800-RECYCLE or www.bottlesandcans.com Recycling glass reduces air pollution by 20% Energy saved from recycling one aluminum can and water pollution by 50% will operate a television set for three hours. 32 Riverside County os tic és Riverside County om Regional Recyclers od s ctr co Regional Recyclers eta le Ele rio sti pe l M es/ Vid Plá Pa / c / ls an s/ cs r/ eta pli as sti pe M Ap Gl Pla Pa Repairable Appliances Non-Ferrous Metals Scrap Appliances HDPE Plastic - #2 Computer Paper Non-CRV Glass PET Plastic - #1 Ferrous Metals CFC Removal Car Batteries Mixed Paper Ofﬁce Paper Newspaper CRV Plastic Cardboard Polystyrene CRV Glass Aluminum Phone / Número Riverside Metro Area Address / Dirección de Teléfono Tin 20/20 Recycling Center 480 McKinley St. Corona 91719-1291 800-969-2020 X X X X X Yawl Recycle Center 31 E.
