"Recycle Often. Recycle Right." Calendar Art Contest

It’s time for our “green” Van Goghs to get their moment in the spotlight! Waste Management is seeking twelve illustrations to make up its 2015 community calendar.

As the City of Moreno Valley’s trash and recycling collection service provider for over 30 years, we want to encourage our customers to continue to improve their recycling habits by recycling often and recycling right. When we recycle the right way, recycled materials have a greater chance of becoming new products—which saves natural resources and helps the environment!

In honor of recycling often and recycling right, Waste Management is challenging City of Moreno Valley 7th grade students to illustrate how residents can improve their recycling habits for a healthier environment. Through artistic expression and imagination, we hope this contest inspires children to make recycling properly an everyday practice.

Recycling Market Development Zone (RMDZ)


The Recycling Market Development Zone (RMDZ) program incorporates recycling with economic development to energize new businesses, increase existing ones, create jobs, and divert waste from landfills.

This program provides attractive loans, technical assistance, and free product marketing to businesses that use materials from the waste stream to manufacture their products and are located in a zone. The zones cover roughly 88,000 square miles of California from the Oregon border to San Diego. For more information on the overall program, please visit the CalRecycle Web site.

The Riverside County RMDZ program is administered by the California Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery to stimulate recycling and create jobs. For more information visit their Web site, Recycling Market Development Zone (RMDZ).
