Small Daily Acts. Big Impact. Learn More.Reduce. The single most effective way to Keep Truckee Green is to refuse single-use items. Residents and visitors are in this together. On peak weekends we can generate over 1,000,000 additional landfill items per day.

Reuse. Rethink single-use. You’ve gotten used to bringing reusable bags to the grocery store — great work! Bring your reusable water bottle, coffee mug and utensils, too! Create new habits, and save energy and resources through reuse.

Recycle Right. Give those recyclables another life! Get to know what goes in the Truckee blue bag. View the recycling guide for more info »

Be the difference.

For today. For tomorrow. For Truckee.

Becoming a world-class destination brings more people, which means more trash. Alongside growth, tourism and recreation comes responsibility. What we do with our trash is big part of Keeping Truckee Green for future generations. In 1994, the Truckee landfill was closed. It’s full. Together, let’s commit to shipping off less trash by eliminating single-use, disposable items, making mindful shopping choices and recycling right in Truckee.
