NORTH SHORE – North Shore residents affected by the August 30 thunderstorm will have the opportunity to dispose of green waste collected from the storm for free this Saturday, October 2.
Burrtec Waste & Recycling Services will operate a free green waste disposal event starting at 8 a.m. Saturday at the North Shore Beach & Yacht Club Community Center in North Shore, 99‑155 Sea View Dr. The event will run until noon, or until the front loaders are full.
“This pickup is a continuation of clean-up efforts from the recent North Shore storm that broke apart many trees,” said Supervisor V. Manuel Perez. “Following the storm, county crews removed debris off the public roads and many volunteers from Team Rubicon were able to clear massive tree debris that could potentially be a hazard. This clean-up will help residents dispose of any remaining green waste resulting from the storm and keep the community clean.”
Accepted items are: yard waste including plant debris, leaves, branches and brush. Bundled green waste is welcomed. Green waste should be no longer than three feet in length or six inches in diameter. Residents will need to unload their items out of their vehicle. Non-green waste, such as household waste, will not be accepted.
The Riverside County Department of Waste Resources is assisting with staffing for Saturday’s green waste disposal event.
Supervisor V. Manuel Perez represents the eastern two-thirds of Riverside County on the Riverside County Board of Supervisors. Stretching from Palm Springs and Desert Hot Springs, south to the Salton Sea and east to Blythe and the Colorado River, the 4th District is the largest geographical district in the county.
Supervisor Perez’s office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
