Local Recycling

Buying local reduces the amount of energy taken to bring the products to the community. By reusing products you save the energy it would take to make that product again and cut landfill waste. When used products are purchased it not only helps the environment but saves money.

Waste Management provides garbage and recycling services to residents and businesses in Klamath Falls. Visit Waste Management's website for information about what materials can be recycled, collection schedules, rates and to change service levels.
