Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful Launches New Online Recycling Guide

Do you ever find yourself wondering how to properly dispose of various items? If you’ve ever asked questions like “Can this be recycled?”, “What should I do with leftover paint?”, or “Why can’t I recycle plastic bags curbside?”, then Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB) has the answer for you! In an effort to help our community find answers to these frequently asked recycling questions KTMB has launched a comprehensive, easy-to-use online recycling guide to help local residents and businesses learn how to properly recycle and dispose of hundreds of everyday items. The new guide also provides tips and guides for sustainable living.

“We are so excited to launch this new resource to help our community members live more sustainably by reducing, reusing, and of course, recycling,” says Christi Cakiroglu, Executive Director of KTMB. “This new online tool is extremely comprehensive. It not only answers the most common questions people have but also provides information on how to properly dispose of many items, including those that can go in your curbside bin, and helpful tips for waste reduction and disposal of household items in an environmentally responsible manner. The guide was created by The Recyclist and is maintained by KTMB staff with funding from the Washoe County Health District, so all the information is kept up-to-date and accurate for the Truckee Meadows. We strongly encourage everyone to check out this wonderful new community resource!”
