JBLM Refuse & Recycling Information

JBLM recycles as much as possible in an effort to protect the environment, to meet the Department of Defense goals by diverting non-hazardous solid waste from landfill disposal, and  to wisely steward financial and natural resources by minimizing waste. These efforts combined will sustain resources allowing JBLM to be a premier training installation well into the future.

Due to COVID 19, the local refuse and recycling services are constantly changing. Please call these locations first for hours, to make sure they are open, and you are eligible to use them.
