Other Notes Curbside recycling in South Lake Tahoe is conducted via the "Blue Bag" program where recyclables are separated into blue bags (available at stores, events, and from South Tahoe Refuse) and placed out with trash collection. South Tahoe Refuse conducts single stream recycling, so all trash is sorted, but separating it prevents contamination.
