The KTMB crew goes to work everyday excited to tackle community issues such as illegal dumping, recycling and blight. We are vey lucky to have an organization in the Truckee Meadows that can work collaboratively with numerous levels of government and other nonprofits to solve community issues.

KTMB has become one of the premiere 'quality of life' organizations for the Northern Nevada region - specifically in Reno and Sparks. The group is powered by a smart, efficient crew with the skills to motivate hundreds of volunteers and dozens of program coordinators to do the wonderful things they do for our community. KTMB is the force behind ten extremely well run programs ranging from solving area litter removal and illegal dumping issues to paper-making and Christmas Tree recycling efforts. Their programs have sent more than 200 tons of phone books to recycyle in just the past two years. And more than 40,000 X-Mas trees have been sent through the chipper for reuse in other urban areas. The list goes on and on and the success metrics are right there front and center to prove the value KTMB is to our community. I'm a fan!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

our parks and urban areas where wood chips from Christmas Tree recycling are used for smart landscape management. I've seen phonebook recycling bins across the city grow and harvest more than 20 tons of phone books, up from just 7 tons 4 years ago.
