After the snow melts, the trash that was pushed aside remains. Well, now it’s time to pick it up!
Local residents are banding together to tackle trash in Tahoe City, as part of a region wide clean-up effort across North Lake Tahoe and Truckee on Saturday, June 4. This regional event offer locals and visitors a chance to pitch in to keep North Tahoe towns and neighborhoods beautiful, and include group events, disposal programs, and of course, after-parties.
“The Tahoe City Downtown Association is dedicated to producing events that bring the community together, but also give back to our majestic Lake Tahoe environment. We are proud to join this effort in here in Tahoe City,” said Stacie Lyans, Executive Director of the Tahoe City Downtown Association.
The Tahoe City Cleanup Day is planned for June 4, 8:30am to noon, and volunteers and sponsors are needed. Volunteers will check in at the Commons Beach picnic tables at 8:30am to enjoy breakfast snacks, pickup materials, volunteer t-shirt, and free pizza lunch. Once checked in, volunteers will be assigned different sections of Tahoe City to pick up trash. Accompanied children are welcome. Pre-registration is recommended.
In 2015, TCDA hosted a very successful cleanup day in partnership with Keep Tahoe Blue, with over 50 volunteers, and collected 376 pounds of trash and 1,846 cigarette butts, plus some significantly larger items not included in the total. 2016 is expected to continue growing into a bigger event for Tahoe City.
The Tahoe City Cleanup Day is supported by Keep Tahoe Blue, Tahoe City Public Utility District, Tahoe Truckee Sanitation District, Tipsy Gypsy, Tahoe House, Sugar Pine Cakery and Front Street Pizza. This annual event is made possible by the hard work of local non-profit organizations, government agencies and amazing volunteers.
