Starting 2012 REACH recognized the need for a secure shredding services, and was able purchase equipment to provide those services for the Klamath Basin. Since then we have built up our system to be able to include in the recycling of cardboard, white paper, plastics, household metals, redeemable cans and bottles.
In 2019, with the help of Klamath County Waste Management, and the Klamath community, REACH was able to purchase a recycle sort line. Utilizing the sort line we can separate the materials into their respected groups and bale them for sale to wholesalers and other processing facilities.
As we expand we are looking for more efficient ways to process recycling while providing more work opportunities to the community. We are proud to be able to contribute to the recycling efforts of the City of Klamath Falls, as well as Klamath County, and hope to soon get back to where we were with our efforts pre-Covid.
