Clean Up Riverside

Clean Up Riverside is a program that promotes the value of having a clean City, raises consciousness of litter habits and improves overall community pride and involvement.

Keeping our City clean and well-maintained discourages vandalism, graffiti, littering and crime.


Periodic Collection Events

As part of its Clean Up Riverside campaign, the City hosts periodic bulky item and electronic waste collection events for items too large to fit into residential trash containers. All items are collected free of charge for City residents.
