The annual Keep Tahoe Red, White and Blue Beach Cleanup returns to the lake Friday.

Each year the League to Save Lake Tahoe hosts a cleanup at beaches around the lake the day after Tahoe’s busiest holiday.

The cleanup will take place from 8-11:30 a.m. at Commons Beach in Tahoe City, Kings Beach, Kiva Beach, Nevada Beach and Regan Beach.

​”After Tahoe’s celebrated July Fourth festivities, our beaches are thrashed with trash, which can hurt wildlife and lake clarity,” states the League, also known by its slogan — Keep Tahoe Blue. “Each year, hundreds of Tahoe residents and visitors turn out for our largest cleanup of the year to remove litter from our beaches.”

The league provides reusable cleanup bags, gloves and hand sanitizer, refreshments, giveaways and free raffle prizes. Large groups are asked to RSVP here.

Volunteers are asked to bring reusable water bottle, sunscreen, cleanup gloves (if you have them), hat, sunglasses and snacks. Volunteers should wear comfortable clothing and shoes.
