Department of Waste Resouces to offer free Recycle Camp to Riverside County kids

The Department of Waste Resources will be offering a free Summer Recycle Camp to Riverside County K-12 kids on Saturday, June 24, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

This camp features recycling games, upcycled crafts, chalk artwork, tie-dye activities, reusable prizes, music, and more. 

The hands-on 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. Participants will have an opportunity to play a 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.  

This event will be held outdoors in the Resource Garden and will be a zero-waste program. Participants are encouraged to bring a refillable water bottle to refill at the hydration station.

Registration is required. Space is limited to 150 kids. To make a reservation, click here.
