Great Community Cleanup
KTMB’s Great Community Cleanup 2017
KTMB’s Great Community Cleanup 2017 will be Saturday, May 6th, 2017. Volunteer registration will be up in April, so please check back then or sign up for our newsletter to get updates about KTMB events and volunteer opportunities. We will need volunteers to help with the cleanup of illegal dumpsites in the open spaces and the removal of invasive weeds. A volunteer appreciation picnic will follow the cleanup. We hope to see you out there!
KTMB began conducting open space cleanups in 2001, mobilizing groups of volunteers to help preserve and maintain publicly-owned areas within the Truckee Meadows. In 2006, Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful, working with Washoe County Regional Parks and Open Space, Washoe County Environmental Health, City of Sparks, Bureau of Land Management, United States Forest Service, and the City of Reno, established the Great Community Cleanup. As a result of this collaboration, KTMB and municipal land owners realized cleaning up after illegal dumpers is not the best way to prevent illegal dumping. Thus the Illegal Dumping Task Force was created to address the best ways to educate the Truckee Meadows community.
You can report illegal dumping by calling the ‘dump hotline’ – (775) 329-DUMP.
