About Bend Garbage & Recycling
Bend Garbage & Recycling is a local, family owned business, proudly serving our communities since 1960. Bend Garbage & Recycling received the “Distinguished Business of the Year” award in the large business category by vote of Bend Chamber of Commerce members.
Bruce and Karin Bailey bought Bend Garbage & Recycling (BGR) from Joe Chotard. The family legacy began when son Brad Bailey (and Lisa) and son-in-law Chris Crownover (and Laura) joined the company. Together the owners approach 90 years combined experience in the waste management field.
The company has transitioned residential service from stationary customer cans to roll carts, added curbside recycling in the city and the rural area and continue to add programs like subscription yard debris service and commercial food waste collection within the city limits.
Aside from garbage and recycling, BGR offers medical waste collection and SecureShred on-site document destruction services. Additionally, the ownership group owns and operates Deschutes Recycling at Knott Landfill and High Country Disposal in Redmond, serving Redmond, Terrebonne, Sisters and Black Butte Ranch.
The owners consider their 100+ employees to be their most valuable asset and work hard to provide them with family wages and benefits. “Our employees are the backbone of our business, they are the reason we are successful,” says President, Brad Bailey. “And we pride ourselves on visiting nearly every one of our 12,000 customers each week!”
BGR is dedicated to bettering our community by supporting charitable endeavors and participating in various community boards and service groups. Charitable efforts are focused on family, seniors, children, education and annual community events that support these areas.
In 2009, BGR along with the other Central Oregon garbage haulers, formed CAN Cancer – Community Assistance for Neighbor with Cancer. This program helps local families manage day-to-day non-medical expenses, including fuel, travel and food costs, while receiving cancer treatment. 100% of donations stay local.
The company’s mission statement, “Providing the finest waste disposal and recycling services” is regarded not only as a mission and a goal, but also as an opportunity to contribute to the community.
