NEW Compost Drop-Off Program


Feed Gardens, Not Landfills!

Keep Truckee Green is excited to announce a partnership with Slow Food Lake Tahoe, bringing you expanded compost drop-off options! We are excited to offer you three locations to drop off residential compostable waste. Keep your fruits, veggies, coffee grounds and eggshells out of the landfill and turn them back into soil instead.

NOTE: This is an optional drop-off program, not to be confused with our Green Waste carts for yard waste.

What’s Accepted?


– fruits / veggies
– flowers
– eggshells
– coffee grounds
– leaves
– sawdust from untreated wood

NO! (Please keep these items out of our compost.)

– bread / bones / meat / dairy / seafood / fats / leftovers

shredded newspaper
