Environment & Recycling
WRCOG is committed to assisting Western Riverside County’s environmental and energy issues of regional significance, including but not limited to air quality, water quality, solid and hazardous waste, habitat preservation, environmental justice, and environmental impact analysis.
The Environmental Department houses three programs to meet California’s goals: 1) the Solid Waste and Recycling Program, which assists in developing strategies to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants; 2) a Clean Cities Coalition which aims to cut petroleum use in the transportation sector through the integration of advanced alternative technologies including zero-emission vehicles (ZEV); and 3) a regional Used Oil Recycling Program, designed to promote the proper recycling and disposal of used motor oil, filters, and other household hazardous wastes (HHW).
Clean Cities Coalition
The goal of the WRCOG Clean Cities Coalition is to reduce the consumption of petroleum fuels and improve air quality in Western Riverside County.
Solid Waste Cooperative
WRCOG works with its member jurisdictions, partners, and CalRecycle to help Western Riverside County achieve state mandated waste diversion goals.
Used Oil Recycling
WRCOG's Used Oil Recycling Program seeks to reduce the improper disposal of used motor oil, which can contaminate water and the environment.
Love your Neighborhood
Love Your Neighborhood is a pollution prevention initiative administered by the Western Riverside County Association of Governments (WRCOG) and supported through a sponsorship with Riverside County Watershed Protection Program (RCWPP) and Riverside County Flood Control (RCFC)
