Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful KTMB, Reno, Nevada Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB) is a primary reason we enjoy a (mostly) clean and litter-free environment in the Reno area. This non-profit organization oversees a number of programs and activities that remove trash, help with recycling, deal with illegal dumping, and educate the public about these and other issues that mar the landscape and create health hazards (such as dog owners not picking up their pets' poop).

Major KTMB Events
