Welcome to Tahoe Donner. Here are a few tasks that will help you settle in.
You must obtain your Tahoe Donner mailbox through the United States Postal Service. There is a post office located downtown on Jibboom Street. Full-time residents qualify for these mailboxes first. Most second homeowners do not have mailboxes or simply use a PO box. UPS and Fed Ex deliver to homes in Tahoe Donner.
Tahoe-Truckee Sierra Disposal (TTSD) picks up trash in Tahoe Donner on Tuesdays. There are regulations per size and weight. Individual cans, bags, or containers must not exceed 32 gallons in volume or 60 pounds in weight. Cans should have tight-fitting lids that are not screw top. TTSD does not service the screw-top “bear-resistant” cans. Please call 530-583-0148 for more information.
During snowstorms, trash is still picked up as long as your bear bin is dug out and clear of snow.
As of June 30, 2018, green bags are no longer accepted for pickup by the Town of Truckee. Instead, free yard waste carts are available, and will be picked up every other week during summer months. The Town of Truckee website has full details about Green Waste Disposal.
For the months of May, June, July and August, Truckee residents may purchase a 6-yard capacity, yard waste-only dumpster through the Town of Truckee. Dumpsters are intended to be loaded with loose yard waste material, which means no bags. Dumpsters also accommodate larger woody materials such as limbs and branches in addition to pine needles, pine cones, brush, and garden waste. Call Tahoe-Truckee Sierra Disposal at (530) 583-7800 for additional details and to reserve your dumpster.
To set up your electricity account for your property contact the Truckee Public Utilities District at (530) 587-3896.
