Residents

You can make a big difference in the quality of our beautiful Riverside County waterways.


Throw trash in the can

Litter on the sidewalk often ends up in the storm drains and flows into our waterways.


Clean naturally

Use only nontoxic, environmentally friendly and biodegradable cleaners and soaps.


Dispose of dog waste

Pet waste can pollute our waterways. Please clean up after your furry family members!

CAR OWNERS

Cars are known for polluting the air, but they also can pollute our local waterways if we aren’t careful.

PET OWNERS

Picking up after your four-legged friends helps keep our streets and waterways clean.

GARDENERS

Be a true “green” thumb. Grow an eco-friendly garden that benefits your plants and the planet.

POOL OWNERS

Swimming pools and hot tubs must be maintained properly to keep chemicals from our waterways.

HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE

Toxic materials like motor oil and oil filters, anti-freeze, paints, solvents, cleaners, aerosols and batteries need to be recycled properly to keep them from leaching into our waterways. Riverside County has three collection facilities that offer free drop-off and disposal of your unwanted household hazardous waste.
