Community Cleanup Day Aka $5.00 Dump Day Saturday June 11th 2022
In 2021 we held two Community Clean Up events (June 12th, and September 18th) to make up for the missed dump day in Spring of 2020 (due to COVID 19 restrictions) . As usual the low dumping rates drew quite a crowd, with 995 vehicles coming through the gates of South Tahoe Refuse to take advantage of the great deals.
In total, 704,000 pounds of debris were disposed of, including: furniture, appliances, electronics, green waste and 8,500 pounds of sensitive documents that were shredded. We recycled as much material as possible, including 12,840 pounds of electronics, 37,020 pounds of metal, and 8,500 pounds of paper. In addition, 38 refrigerators were decommissioned, and 165 mattresses were recycled.
We cant wait to hold this event again this year.
Community Cleanup Day is made possible in part by a generous grant from Vail Resorts’ EpicPromise program. Thank you Vail!
