Join Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful as we partner with Artown to go Plastic Free for the month of July! We will be helping out Mondays, Wednesdays, and (1) Thursday in the evenings to set up and monitor (2) two water stations during Artown events at Wingfield Park in Downtown Reno. Volunteers will also help sell reusable cups that attendees can keep!
KTMB’s Litter Index Survey tracks the cleanliness of the Truckee Meadows as a whole. It is done annually as part of a national effort by Keep America Beautiful, who collects this data from across the country to provide information and resources on the impacts of litter in the U.S. KTMB conducts the Litter Survey each year and incorporates the survey in our various programs, especially to identify possible cleanup sites for the Truckee River Cleanup Day or Great Community Cleanup. Areas are rated based on a scale of 1-4: 1, meaning “virtually no litter”; and 4, indicating “major illegal dump site”. The survey will be done by car, driving the specified route. Sign up as a group (1 car, 4-5 people) or sign up individually to join a group.
