Tahoe Recreation, a division of California Land Management (CLM) and the operator of the Forest Service campgrounds and beaches around Lake Tahoe, has launched an aggressive recycling program at all of its facilities. “We are really excited about this program”, said Eric Mart, President of California Land Management. “It is another way to keep the Lake Tahoe area clean and to conserve resources through recycling.” Although recycling has been a part of CLM and the Forest Service’s program since 1985, the new effort aims to increase the amount of materials collected and recycled. Tahoe Recreation has contracted with a firm called Destination Eco Services to assist with the recycling efforts. Destination Eco Services has placed recycling collection bins at all of the Forest Service campgrounds as well as at Pope, Baldwin, Nevada, and Meeks Bay beaches. Mart stated, “The public is very enthusiastic about this new program and we have received many positive comments. We are glad to be a partner in this endeavor.”
