Sixty-seven volunteers participated in the annual Village Cleanup Day in Incline Village and Crystal Bay on Saturday, resulting in the collection of eight cubic yards of garbage and recyclables.

The time these volunteers spent in coordinating the event and beautifying our communities represented about 300 community service hours.

“This year was the most successful Village Clean-up Day yet,” said Madonna Dunbar, Resource Conservationist with IVGID Waste Not.

In Incline, teams of volunteers cleaned up Tahoe Boulevard, Lakeshore Boulevard, lower Country Club, Village Boulevard, Northwood, Incline Way, Oriole Way, Tanager Street and Alder Avenue, plus the beaches and the Village Green.

The Village Cleanup Day was sponsored by IVGID and the Rotary Club of Tahoe-Incline, who would like to thank Waste Management for donating Dumpsters; Boy Scout Troop 37 for tackling the beaches; CERT for providing traffic control; NDOT and NLTFPD for providing traffic control signs; and Starbucks for donating morning coffee.
