RECYCLING

 

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.

Corporate Waste Solutions is the JBLM Recycling contractor: 253-982-3451. Please call for service on full recycling containers, to request a container, or if you have questions about what is recyclable. Check out their website at JBLMrecycling@divertmore.com.  

JBLM Recycles recommends donating large items such as furniture to the JBLM thrift stores, or through an online site such as a "Buy Nothing" group. 

Household Hazardous Waste and paint can be accepted by DPW Environmental Services if you live on JBLM. Please call 253-967-4786 for more information. If you live off-base, please take Household Hazardous Waste to a local county collection site.
