About US

Since 1962 South Tahoe Refuse and Recycling has been engaged in the prudent management of household and commercial garbage.

Our core principles are:

Commitment to the environment

Balance between different forms of life

Reinforcing sustainability practices

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

Sustainability is the ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

It’s a balancing act, but everyone can do their part. Think reduce. It’s a step toward Zero Waste and reduced greenhouse gasses. Less demand means less stress on the environment to provide for us now, as well as future generations. Just using less plastic has a huge impact.

Try eliminating just 1 plastic item from your life for one week. Could you live without it now? Even small efforts support sustainability. Think before you buy, before you use. 

Recycling helps, but Reduce and Reuse have the biggest impact. Conservation or smart use of water, fuels, energy, or commercially processed food can make a difference now and in the future.
