Earth Day is not just a once a year holiday for Mt. Diablo Recycling (MDR), a division of recycling and resource recovery company Garaventa Enterprises, though it does highlight a reason to celebrate with the Contra Costa County community. MDR’s 3rd Annual Funtastic Family Earth Day Celebration on April 25 offers free family fun!
The Funtastic Family Earth Day Celebration includes a choice between two separate two-hour sessions (10 a.m. to 12 noon and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.) taking place, for free, at the MDR facility located at 1300 Loveridge Road in Pittsburg, Calif. Each session includes a tour of MDR’s 90,000-square-foot recycling facility where participants will learn about the “Big Blue” and “Big Wall-e” recycling machines, an interactive education lesson about the 5 R’s (Reduce-Reuse-Recycle-Respect-Recover), recycling games, and a take home pile of compost. Families can also take pictures with the Recycling Guy and with recycling trucks.
To reserve a space today, in either session, contact Adriana Medina at 925-771-2721 or at [email protected]. Space is limited to 50 people per session.
“There is no better time than Earth Day to share our passion for recycling and recovery with the entire community,” said Joseph Garaventa, MDR’s Chief Executive Officer.
