Trash day is Saturday

Wanted: South Lake Tahoe trash items, large or small.

The South Tahoe Refuse Company is hosting a community cleanup day Saturday for residents to unload their unwanted items.

In addition to regular household items, other bulk items can also be dumped. Refrigerators and other freon appliances will have a fee of $28. Tires can be dumped for free, as part of Tire Amnesty Day, with a maximum of nine tires per vehicle load. Hazardous household materials, including oil for recycling, can be dumped to a maximum of 20 gallons per household.

Fees do not apply to commercial loads or to Nevada residents. Nevada residents will be asked to pay an additional one-time fee of $3 because they don’t pay a yearly fee to support the Clean Tahoe Program like El Dorado County and city of South Lake Tahoe residents.

Not only can residents clean up their own homes and neighborhoods, they are encouraged to volunteer in cleaning up Clean Tahoe Program designated sites around the area.

The Clean Tahoe Program is a nonprofit organization committed to helping maintain the purity of Lake Tahoe by educating the public through citizen involvement.
