Mt. Diablo Recycling, a division of recycling and resource recovery company Garaventa Enterprises, is hosting its Second Annual Family Earth Day Celebration on April 26 with free facility tours and the announcement of the elementary, middle school and high school winners of the Recycling Contest.

The Family Earth Day Celebration has two free, two-hour sessions -- 10 a.m. to 12 noon and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. --  at the MDR facility at 1300 Loveridge Road in Pittsburg.

Attendees will see 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 craft.

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 Adriana.Medina@Garaventaent.com Space is limited to 50 people per session.

Before the start of the second session at 1 p.m., winners of MDR’s first ever Recycling Contest will be announced.

First, second and third place winners in each category will receive cash prizes ranging from $50 to $500 live at MDR, and their winning projects will be displayed.
