Ready... Set... Reuse!

This event has expired and is here for your reference.


To celebrate the 50th annual Earth Day, Mount Diablo Resource Recovery is holding a Kids Creativity Contest!

Kids can make whatever they want as long as it’s Earth themed. Maybe it’s a frame, sunglasses, a car or a drawing… the sky’s the limit-- the catch? you can only use items typically found in the garbage or recycle cart. Please NO new or raw materials (tape, glue and staples are okay)

This contest is open to kids between the ages of 5-10 who reside in MDRR’s service areas (Concord, Oakley, Pittsburg, Rio Vista, Discovery Bay along with the county areas of Bay Point and Brentwood).

Parents must submit photo entries must be submitted via email to by 6:59 p.m. PST 4/30/2020.

All entries MUST include child’s age, small description of the materials that were reused and a minimum of 2 colored photographs of the completed project, no collages.
