Valley Recycling: Waste Diversion and Recycling Services in Flathead Valley

Welcome to Valley Recycling

​ For over 29 years, Valley Recycling has been dedicated to preserving the natural beauty of the Flathead Valley. Our mission is to divert as much recyclable material as possible from the Flathead County Solid Waste Facility (County Landfill).

Through our partnership with Evergreen Disposal and with the active participation of the Flathead Valley community, we have successfully reduced landfill-bound waste by an average of 7.5 million pounds of material annually. In 2021 and 2022, our collective efforts enabled us to collect and process over 15.8 million pounds of materials to be recycled.

About Our Local Kalispell, Montana Facility:

Valley Recycling is a Material Recover Facility, or MRF. ​ MRFs are specialized operations that receive, separate and prepare recyclable materials for marketing to end-user manufacturers. Our industrial baler operates five days a week, nine hours a day, efficiently compressing cardboard, paper, plastics, and aluminum cans into compact bales for shipping. ​

We are committed to ongoing research to identify new recycling opportunities, which will further reduce the volume of waste reaching the County Landfill. As the valley continues expanding, it is essential to recognize that the landfill will eventually reach capacity. When this occurs, we will be faced with two options:

  1. Use more of Flathead County's limited and pristine natural resources and allocate additional funds to establish a new landfill or expand the existing one.
  2. Alternatively, transport our waste to another landfill, incurring substantial additional cost for transportation and disposal, while also increasing vehicle emissions.

Thank you for joining us in our mission to protect the beauty of the Flathead Valley and minimize impacts to our natural environment. ​ Please consider ways you can help reduce the volume of waste generated by remembering the 3 R’s - Reduce Reuse Recycle.

From the staff at Valley Recycling and Evergreen Disposal, we thank you!

Our baler runs 5 days a week, 9 hours each day, compressing cardboard, paper, plastics and aluminum cans into compact shipping units

We are continuously researching new ways and items to recycle so that we can further decrease the volume of waste being deposited at the County Landfill. It’s inevitable that we will run out of space at the landfill at which point we would have two options:

  1. Use up more of Flathead County’s limited and pristine natural resources and money to create a new landfill (or expand the existing one), or
  2. Ship our garbage (at large costs) to another landfill outside the county.
