Bragg about Recycling
Fort Bragg's Qualified Recycling Program (QRP) is an award winning and federally recognized program. The goal of the program is to reclaim materials from the solid waste stream, retain revenues for reinvestment in diversion technologies to further recover recyclable materials, while minimizing the costs of solid waste disposal and sustaining our environmental future. The recycling facilities located in the DPW Compound and the Lamont Road Landfill will recycle most municipal and construction & demolition materials.
Recyclable items on Fort Bragg:
Office paper, plastic bottles, various metals, used oil, antifreeze, paint, tires, pallets, magazines, glass, range targets, land clearing debris, concrete/asphalt/bricks, cardboard, aluminum cans, electronics, cooking oil, non-spec JP*, batteries, white goods, aerosol cans, newspapers, plastic bags/wrap, furniture
