Sustainable Klamath runs three community-based projects, all focused on citizen involvement to improve sustainability practices in the Klamath Basin.
Located at 1221 Main Street, the Klamath Tool Library loans out many types of tools and equipment to members. With over 1,400 tools in stock, the Tool Library assists community members in finding the right tool for the job without the cost of ownership. We have over 100 members and membership is only a suggested donation of $15 per year, or you can get a discounted membership with the Tool Library if you join Sustainable Klamath. Visit the Tool Library website to view our inventory and learn how to become a member.
The Solid Waste Action Committee (SWAC) was formed to address the challenges of changing regulations within the U.S. recycling landscape. We provide community education on recycling topics through our Trash Talk column, which appears in section A of the Herald & News on the last Wednesday of every month, and we maintain a list of alternative drop-off locations for items that are not recyclable through curb-side pickup. SWAC works with Waste Management and REACH, Inc. to demystify and streamline recycling in the Klamath Basin and enhance access to solid waste management resources, like “free dump days.” Please contact us to inquire about current SWAC projects and how you can participate.
After 10 years of service, the Mills Community Garden is closing its gates in 2022. Sustainable Klamath is interested in supporting other community gardens in the Basin with educational materials and possibly volunteers. Please reach out if you think we can support your community garden project.
