The Kirkland Downtown Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization representing the common interests of Kirkland’s downtown business community.

KDA members include business owners, property owners, and members of the community who are dedicated to the vibrancy of Downtown Kirkland. Part of the KDA’s activities include community events which encourage people to visit, shop, live, work and play in our downtown Kirkland’s unique waterfront setting.

Waste Management, a vital part of our community and supporter of local non-profits, has been a generous supporter of community events that help to make Kirkland a vibrant community.

This year, Waste Management is the title sponsor of the KDA, helping the KDA produce Kirkland community events such as Celebrate Kirkland 4th of July parade and fireworks show, the Wednesday Farmer’s Market, Summer Concert Series for Kids and Adults, the Classic Car Show, Winterfest, and beautification and clean-up projects for Downtown. In addition to their financial support, they also assist by providing garbage and recycling services for the events, helping the KDA keep Kirkland clean and green.

Besides financial sponsorship, Waste Management’s community focused values are demonstrated through other ways. During the holidays, some of their drivers dress up as Santa when picking up the trash or recycling, bringing a smile to our neighbors and kids. As title sponsor of the KDA in 2018, Waste Management is excited and proud to continue to build upon this joyful community partnership.
