Would you like to make a visible difference where you live or to another part of the Truckee Meadows? You can organize a cleanup with your business or group and KTMB can help you do it. KTMB will provide trash pickers, trash bags, and tools for your cleanup. You provide the enthusiastic volunteers!

KTMB’s Neighborhood Cleanup program is essential to keeping our entire community beautiful year-round. Anyone is welcome to participate! We often have school groups, businesses and clubs calling us to do a cleanup because they care about keeping their area looking beautiful. KTMB coordinates cleanups in parks, business corridors and residential neighborhoods.
