No need to burn it, recycle it

Sierra Sun staff report

It’s that time of year. Truckee residents are pulling out their rakes and garden tools and gearing up for another summer season, which includes fire.

To make it easier for residents to get wildfire prepared, Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal will host its annual Fire Safety Day and offering Truckee residents a free opportunity to rid their homes of unwanted yard debris.

On Saturday, from 7:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. residents can bring up to 20 bags of yard clippings to any of the drop-off points, located in:

– Glenshire: behind clubhouse tennis courts

– Tahoe Donner: at the corner of Northwoods Boulevard and Slalom Way

-Truckee Regional Park: at the rodeo grounds

-Prosser: at Prosser Dam Road east and Highway 89

-Donner Lake: Donner Memorial State Park, near the museum

Fire Safety Day is not open to commercial customers, and no garbage or construction debris will be accepted. Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal asks that customers bring only natural woody debris, such as tree limbs, brush, yard trimmings, pine needles, dead leaves and dry grass. Debris should be no more than 4 feet in length and stems should be no more than 4 inches in diameter.
