North Tahoe community cleanup set for June 2
KEEPING COMMUNITY CLEAN YEAR-ROUND
Join North Tahoe, Truckee, and Incline Village Clean Up Day efforts annually on the first Saturday in June
Lead by example: pick up and dispose of trash around your home, business and wherever and whenever you see it
Keep trash away from local critters -- wait until pick up day to put out trash and recycling
Re-purpose glass jars in the kitchen and use for storage
Carry your own reusable water bottle and coffee cup
Recycle/donate items you don’t use anymore to a local thrift store
Use multi-purpose reusable bags
Gather hazardous waste and call Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal to schedule a drop off
On June 2, over 100 volunteers will take to the streets to pick up trash prior to the busy summer season, a news release states.
Registration will be at 9 a.m. at Community House located at 265 Bear Street in Kings Beach. This registration location is for Carnelian Bay, Tahoe Vista, Kings Beach and Crystal Bay.
Last year, volunteers collected over 3,700 pounds of garbage at this annual community event.
At registration, volunteers will be assigned specific locations to distribute efforts most effectively and they will be provided with gloves, bags, and volunteer appreciation goodies, while supplies last. While cleaning up, volunteers that find “Golden Items” win prizes donated by local businesses.
After the “dirty work”, volunteers are invited to head to Tahoe Central Market where they will receive 10 percent off their purchase when they show their wristband.
Those who are interested can pick up supplies May 29-June 1, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. at North Tahoe Business Association (NTBA) office, 8401 North Lake Blvd. #203 in Kings Beach, located at the Bear Street roundabout.
