FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 5-21-19
REACH Inc Recycle Sort Line near completion
From its beginning, in 1987, REACH has strived to make a positive impact in the Klamath Community. When our Executive Team realized that Klamath Falls had a problem with its Recycle Program, we began working with community and business leaders to carve out a solution. A task force led by REACH, invested two years into research and development to provide a solution for the growing curbside recycle problem.
Klamath Falls OR REACH is only weeks away from opening its Recycle Sort Line, located inside our Maywood Drive Facility. The Sort Line will allow REACH to capture around 65 percent of the Basin’s recyclable items and package them into more marketable formats. This new service will insure that as much of our local items are getting recycled as is economically possible.
New Jobs The new Sort Line will provide 7 to 10 new entry-level jobs to people of the Klamath Basin. REACH has always taken pride in the number of jobs that we are able to provide and are particularly happy when we can energize the local market with new job offerings.
Tours & Questions The Public is welcomed to call and schedule a tour of REACH facilities or if you would like to join us, there will be a media day and open house in the near future. Watch for details.
