Truckee and North Lake Tahoe got a bit of a facelift last week. A record number of volunteers emerged from sheltering in place to pick up trash during Truckee Day. Simultaneous cleanup events across North Lake Tahoe added to that number, collectively picking up over 9,880 pounds of trash.
The virus didn’t keep people from supporting their communities and may have inspired more to get involved. On June 6, Kings Beach, Tahoe Vista, Carnelian Bay and Crystal Bay over 120 people registered for North Tahoe Business Association’s 25th annual Clean Up Day matching and potentially exceeding previous years.
