The Town of Truckee thanks you for taking this yard waste survey! The Town is considering a shift in its curbside yard waste collection program by replacing green bags with 96-gallon rolling carts. If approved by the Council the program would be implemented over a two year process. It would first be rolled out in Tahoe Donner and Glenshire in May 2015 with all remaining neighborhoods in 2016. This change would result in a one-time cart delivery fee for those choosing to participate, however this eliminates the need to purchase green bags on an ongoing basis. Yard waste collection costs are currently part of the basic solid waste refuse collection fee which is included on the property tax bill. The new program would run April 1 to November 30 each year with every other week collection, and is intended for ongoing yard maintenance. For larger yard clean-ups the reduced cost dumpsters and free drop-off at Eastern Regional Landfill will continue to be offered. Participation in this survey will help the Town of Truckee gauge interest in the new program, and allow for the best program possible to be implemented.
