4th annual spring clean!
Volunteers Collected Nearly 1,500 Pounds of Litter at the “Spring Cleanup” Event
THANK YOU to all of the volunteers that helped out at the 4th Annual Spring Cleanup on May 11th.
We had 165 volunteers cleaning up litter from fourteen different neighborhood locations throughout South Tahoe, and they collected an estimated 1,500 pounds of trash and debris from our environment.
The overwhelming majority of the litter collected was single-use plastics, food packaging, straws, and cigarette butts, but volunteers reported finding a variety of other items as well: clothing items, diapers, alcohol bottles, plastic flossers, dog poop bags, tire pieces, tire chains, pallets, and even a Christmas tree.
Thank you to the following local businesses and organizations for leading a cleanup site or donating raffle prizes:
Blue Granite Climbing Gym
Blue Zone Sports
Women of the Moose Lodge
Tahoe Coalition for the Homeless
Harrah’s & Harveys
Hard Rock Resort & Casino
California Conservation Corps
Blue Angel Café & Catering
Sierra Pines Motel & Apartments
We’re already looking forward to next year’s event! Please check back for information on the 2020 spring clean.
