The Riverside County Waste Management Department is responsible for the efficient and effective landfilling of non-hazardous county waste. In this effort the Department operates six landfills, has a contract agreement for waste disposal with an additional private landfill, and administers several transfer station leases. Every effort is made to recycle and reuse appropriate items with scrupulous attention to public health and safety.    In addition to landfill management, the Department provides a variety of community services including Household Hazardous Waste Collection, Recycling/Composting Outreach, Illegal Dumping Clean Up, Community Clean-Ups, and Graffiti Abatement.
