Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful Completes Successful Great American Cleanup Event
Earlier in May, Keep America Beautiful Reno, Nevada-based affiiliate Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB) hosted its 11th annual Great Community Cleanup -- a local initiative of the Great American Cleanup, the nation's largest community improvement program.
More than 700 volunteers worked across 24 sites throughout the Truckee Meadows region surrounding Reno. Volunteers helped to remove invasive weeds, pick up trash in the downtown Reno corridor, and clean up illegally dumped trash. During the 2016 Great Community Cleanup, preliminary results indicate that the volunteers removed an impressive 113,600 pounds of trash and weeds.
