HOW: Clean Tahoe’s mission is to keep El Dorado County clean and beautiful. In partnership with Vail Resort’s Echo charitable giving program, Clean Tahoe Program is opening up the gates of the South Tahoe Refuse Transfer Station to local residents to throw unwanted items away for a very minimal cost.
“Community Cleanup Day plays an important role in preserving our beautiful landscape here at Lake Tahoe,” says Ellen Flynn, Program Manager, Clean Tahoe Program. “We sincerely appreciate the support of local companies, like Heavenly, who share our same values, and who made this day possible through a generous donation from the Vail Resorts Echo charitable giving program.”
WHY: This event is a “Thank You” to our community for supporting the Clean Tahoe Program through a small surcharge on their refuse bills. Each resident pays $1.20 every three months to help clean-up the public areas of the South Shore. Lake Tahoe is one of the most unique ecosystems on the planet. Couches, refrigerators, computers, televisions and tires are not only unsightly, but they are harmful to the environment. Community Cleanup Day is the perfect excuse to clean up!
