June Is the Last Month Yard Waste Will Be Collected in Green Bags

Make yard work wheel fun

This is the last month for Truckee residents to put out green bags for yard waste! Beginning July 1, 2018, you will no longer be able to dispose of yard waste in green bags. This is part of our commitment to prevent up to three million plastic bags from being landfilled over the next 10 years. You can dispose of yard waste going forward in any of the following three ways:

1. If you have opted into the New Service Changes, you will receive your yard waste carts during the beginning of June, and your Yard Waste Cart Service will start in July. If you haven’t opted in yet, make your cart selections here. If you have already reserved your new yard waste cart, find out when it will arrive.

2. You’ll have the option to rent six-yard dumpsters at a discounted rate. These dumpsters allow residents to remove waste efficiently. Dumpsters must be reserved in advance. Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal will drop off a dumpster at your house and pick it up after one week. This program has been so successful bins have been selling out. The new contract will increase the number of dumpsters available to residents to make this option more accessible.

3. You may drop off up to six yards of yard waste for free at the Eastern Regional Landfill. The New Service Changes will also allow a contractor or friend to drop off yard waste for free on your behalf by providing a unique customer code. Codes will be provided on the new online customer service system.
