The Town of Truckee is addressing litter in many of ways, including:
- Providing convenient and accessible disposal options
- Consistent & ongoing clean-up efforts
- Landscaping, beautification and ongoing maintenance to set community standards
- Utilizing awareness and motivational campaigns
Litter efforts are not isolated to one particular department or division or even to just the Town staff. Efforts are being made across several Town departments, including Public Works, Solid Waste and Recycling, Engineering and Economic Development, to abate litter in Truckee. Additionally, many community level efforts typify the Truckee Way; from the annual and longstanding Truckee Day, to the monthly Truckee Litter Corps clean-ups, and the many dedicated community individuals who are picking up trash in their daily lives.
Removing litter from our natural environment prevents trash from entering our waterways and wildlife’s stomachs.
