 Town of Truckee Yard Waste Program

The Town of Truckee Yard Waste Collection Program is effective year-round. To participate, purchase green bags from a local retailer and fill them with vegetative yard waste. Tie the bags securely and place them on the curbside for collection, Duct tape works well to seal bags. Bags must be 4 millimeters thick. Please limit each bag to a maximum weight of 40 pounds.

Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal Company will pick up four bags a week on Tuesdays. You may place more than four bags outside. If you place more than four bags out per week, Tahoe Truckee Sierra Disposal Company will only pick up four per week but will remove them all at once if you call them and pay an additional fee.

Accepted Items include:

  • Pine needles
  • Pine cones
  • Lawn trimmings
  • Garden waste
  • Brush
  • Small twigs and branches
  • Wood chips and bark

Non-eligible items:

  • Large limbs or branches

Green Bags are available at Mountain Hardware, Tahoe Supply Company and at the Member Services Office.
