The Public Works Department provides garbage pick-up services for the residents of Tulelake. The city works with the Siskiyou County Integrated Solid Waste Management Regional Agency to keep these services available.
Thanks to funding provided by Cal-Recycle, through the City/County Payment Program, we also provide a beverage container recycling program. You will find the recycle bins located at the southwest corner of Roper Park by the Public Works yard on C Street.
Recycle containers for household batteries, rechargeable batteries and cell phones, and even used eyeglasses and hearing aids can be found at City Hall.
