Autumn Green Waste Collection Days from Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District

October 22, 2020

This free event, sponsored by the Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District (TMFPD), is for all Washoe County residents. Green waste collection allows residents to dispose of their dry and dead vegetation, shrubs, tree branches, and other wildland fuels in an effort to encourage the creation of defensible space to protect homes and property from wildfires.

Defensible space is the buffer you create between a building on your property and the grass, trees, shrubs, or any wildland area that surrounds it. Items that will not be accepted include household garbage and trash, lumber, hazardous materials, grass clippings, and stumps with root balls. Bags must be emptied and removed. Collection times at all locations are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Here are the 2020 dates and locations…

  • October 24 & 25: Mayberry Park, 101 Woodland Avenue, Reno
