How to Dispose of Bulky Items in Riverside

Published: 02/05/2019


Would you love to declutter your garage, but have no idea how or where to dispose of bulky items, large appliances, and tires? Look no further. As part of the Clean Up Riverside’s Environment (C.U.R.E.) program, the City of Riverside offers residents several dates and locations to easily dispose of large items for free. CURE was established in 2003 to expand California's Integrated Waste Management Act, and promotes the value of having a clean city, raises consciousness of litter habits, and improves overall community pride and involvement. Collection events are the perfect opportunities for clearing up any items too large to fit into residential trash containers.
