RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) — Riverside residents and UCR students, faculty and staff are invited to the seventh annual Incredible Bulk Event on Saturday, June 21, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in UCR Parking Lot 24. The event is sponsored by the city of Riverside Public Works Department, UCR and Keep Riverside Clean & Beautiful.

Participants can drop off unwanted bulky items, including furniture, refrigerators, mattresses and electronics at no cost. Household hazardous waste, such as antifreeze, batteries, oil and paint will not be accepted.

“Now in its eighth year, well over 100 tons have been collected, sorted, recycled and most importantly, kept out of street corners and vacant lots,” said Jeff Kraus, director of local government and community relations.

Participation is limited to city of Riverside residents and UCR students, faculty and staff. Those dropping off items must show proof of residency or campus affiliation. Lot 24 is located on Canyon Crest Drive, between University and Linden avenues. For more information, call (951) 827-7073.
