Free Dump Days: October 6th and 7th 2012

“Residential Dump Days”
Offers Reduced Rates and Free Select Dumping on October 6 and 7

Waste Management announced today the fourth quarterly “Residential Dump Days” to be held in 2012 at the Waste Management Transfer Stations in Reno. The dates for this event are Saturday, October 6 and Sunday, October 7. Residential Dump Days are held solely at the Transfer Stations in Reno – the Lockwood Landfill is closed on weekends.

The reduced dump rates accompanied by free dumping for specific items during Residential Dump Days is the result of a partnership between Waste Management and Washoe County government including our partner in beauty.. Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful. This program helps residents clean up their homes and our communities, which in turn, decreases the amount of illegal dumping in our area.

Signature Helps Renovate the Reno Tahoe Open Entry

“This area is going to shine because of Signature’s expertise and we’re so grateful to have their support,” said Michael Tragash, Special Events Manager for the Reno Tahoe Open.

A longtime fan of local PGA tournament, Signature Landscapes is completely refurbishing the grand visitor entry area to offer the 60,000 visitors a beautiful experience immediately upon entering the grounds.

“The sweet spot of any event starts the very first second you walk onto the course,” said Steven Fine, of Signature Landscapes. “So we made it a point to guarantee something colorful and inviting for the RTO guests.”

This project has come down to the wire in terms of timing with the opening. Signature crews plan on wrapping up the landscape renovations by Monday. Just in time for the huge volume of busses arriving hourly with excited Reno Tahoe Open fans.

Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful receives $5,000

New Math: $5,000 = $11,500 and growing for local nonprofit leader Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful

Lebo Newman and Kate Thomas

In spite of the economic downturn local nonprofit Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful has found an innovative way to keep donor funds flowing through dollar for dollar matches with local landscape contractor, Signature Landscapes.  Now this innovative community organization is looking for other area businesses to match Signature Landscapes’ match.  The landscaper will donate $5,000 in a dollar-for-dollar donation match for quality-of-life leader, Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful.   “Contributions have become more difficult to come by in this economic climate,” states Christi Cakiroglu, Executive Director of Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB).  According to Cakiroglu, as a “non-government agency operating solely on the charity of the community, this matching plan provides much needed support for ten education and beautification programs.”

“A couple of years ago we saw the economic downturn coming and thought, how can we help our individual supporters help us?” recalls Cakiroglu.  “Signature Landscapes immediately got our vision and stepped in with a $5,000 match.”  Since 2009 this dollar for dollar match has more than tripled KTMB’s individual donor giving, and now Signature Landscapes and KTMB are challenging other businesses to match Reno Lawn and Landscapes’ match.  “This is the second year of this program and KTMB has exceeded their original goal.  We would like to see other businesses support their programs,” stated Lebo Newman, owner-partner of Signature Landscapes.

Marketing director for Signature Landscapes, Steve Fine, is excited to partner with the non-profit. “We really hope the residents of the Truckee Meadows can rise to the challenge and take full advantage of this match,” says Fine. “KTMB is so dedicated to maintaining our high-quality of living – both within and around our neighborhoods. It’s been an easy decision to support them.”  According to Fine our community has benefited from a number of long-running volunteer and service programs “many of which you probably didn’t know were run by KTMB.”  Take recycling for example.  “Have you ever recycled your old phone book at local drop-off locations? They have recycled more than 100 tons of these old books this year. What about your Christmas tree after the holiday?  You and your neighbors were able to recycle 11,000 these trees just last year thanks to this organization.  And the chips help year-round in park, river and open space projects to prevent weeds, erosion and promote beautification.”

From the IREM Chapter 89 Newsletter (http://iremnnv.com/newsletter/)

“MNT 402 WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!!!”

IREM Chapter 89 held the Property Maintenance and Risk Management (MNT 402) class in Reno NV in March 2012. This class was extremely informational and valuable. We had a very knowledgeable instructor (Penny Tourangeau) and had several vendors come in and share their specialty and experience with us. Everyone who attended this class benefited! Please inform Jessica Folmer of any classes you would like to bring to Reno NV. We will do everything we can to make it happen.

We will also like to thank our speakers during this class. Their knowledge was extremely helpful and very much appreciated.

Support your local farmers this Saturday at the Grand Opening Block Party and Seedling Sale.

Where (map): Great Basin Community Food Coop, 240 Court Street in Reno

The Grand Opening event will showcase the best of sustainable organizations in northern Nevada, including our finest organic and natural farmers and producers, independent crafters, urban gardeners, educators, and bicyclists.

Court Street will be closed off for a farmers’ market style setup with local farmers selling fresh, local, green seedlings and edible plants for your garden. These plants have been carefully nurtured from area farmers, from as far away as Mewaldt & Lattin Farms in Fallon, Churchill Butte Farms in northern Lyon county, and from local growers like Loping Coyote farms and Reno High School’s Sustainable Agriculture Project.

Support local!
