KTMB is one of most engaged and best managed nonprofits that I have ever worked with.
Christi Cakiroglu and the Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful team are committed to a cleaner, healthier more beautiful environment, through responsible community cleanup programs, effective education and community involvement.
I have been fortunate to work with this organization as a client for almost 20 years.
During this time, KTMB has created and administered community tree planting programs that have resulted in the planting of over 1,274 beautiful shade trees in Reno, Sparks and throughout Washoe County.
They have developed a comprehensive e-waste recycling program which in one year alone, collected 70,000 pounds of hazardous electronic waste. Keeping it out of the Nevada landfills and safely facilitating its recycling into new useful products.
And most importantly they have annually created and administered the nation’s largest single telephone book recycling program. Hundreds of tons of old telephone books were recycled back into new telephone book paper because of this successful and well managed environmental program.
As a representative of a Fortune 100 company that has a long history with KTMB, I must say that this is the finest and best managed community non-profit that I have ever worked with.
Bravo to KTMB, Christi Cakiroglu and fine staff and volunteers that help to Keep Nevada Beautiful!
