Take advantage of the Solid Waste & Recycling Program's recycling programs available on post! Recycling is a simple way that you can help out the environment and preserve our natural resources from being depleted. Proceeds from the garrison's qualified recycling program help fund environmental projects and Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation events for the community.

Recyclables can be dropped off at the Army Recycling Center during the center's hours of operation. You MUST call ahead and make an appointment before taking wood and green waste to the center.
