Illegal Dumping
Report illegal dumping in your area by calling 775-329-DUMP (3867).
Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB) is a local nonprofit dedicated to creating a cleaner more beautiful region through education and active community involvement since 1989. Our projects focus on beautification, advocacy, cleanups and education. Everything we do from planting flowers in parks, to cleaning up trash along the river and educating school children on the impacts of litter work toward a larger goal of increasing the quality of life for everyone who lives in and visits this area. Litter and blight decrease property values and increase crime rates. In order to safely and enjoyably walk through local parks, bike along the Truckee River or hike in the open spaces, it has to be free of litter, illegal dumping and graffiti. KTMB engages over 5,000 volunteers each year in community projects. Volunteering can not only increase positive outlooks on life in general, but it is a great way to get out, stay active and meet people in your community who care about the same things you do. Our next big volunteer event is KTMB’s Great Community Cleanup on Saturday, May 6, 2017. To learn more about KTMB and how to get involved, visit www.ktmb.org.
