Incredible Bulk Trash Event set for June 24

UCR to host annual trash collection event

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) — The annual University of California, Riverside, Incredible Bulk Trash Event will take place on Saturday, June 24, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Lot 24. The drop-off allows city of Riverside residents, UCR students, faculty and staff to dispose of unwanted household products.

Participants can bring by 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. The event is sponsored by the city of Riverside Public Works Department, and the university.

“Now in its 11th 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.

Kraus said the event is timed to coincide with the end of the school year, when many students move out of their apartments and houses. Participation is limited to city of Riverside residents and the UCR community. 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.
