The Clean Tahoe Program’s mission is to improve the visual environment in South Lake Tahoe through proper litter and trash management and public education. The Program has two full-time field crew members who serve as Clean Tahoe’s front-line troops who remove litter and illegally dumped items from the public easements along our heavily traveled roads. We also respond to community complaints regarding animal access to trash and bulk items (appliances, mattresses, furniture, etc.) in public view and we provide much needed education to properties in violation of litter and trash ordinances.
In our 2020-2021 fiscal year, Clean Tahoe picked up 500,400 pounds of trash
222 Illegal Dumps consisting of mattresses, furniture, freezers refrigerators, tires, and TVs
393 Animal in Trash Incidents
