Qualified Recycling Program
Fort Hunter Liggett has been chosen as one of the pilot installations for both Net Zero Energy and Net Zero Waste. The installation has made significant progress in reducing energy use by more than 40%. Our 1 megawatt (MW) solar power system build brings the installation even closer to achieving the Army’s NET ZERO Energy goals.
In 2011, Department of Public Works, Environmental (DPWE) started recycling and identified the need for a qualified program. Lean Six Sigma (LSS) was tasked with several recycling projects. In 2013, LSS partnered with DPWE and DFMWR to develop the Qualified Recycling Program (QRP) Oversight Committee. The committee developed policies, procedures and a business plan for the execution of the QRP in the installation.
Fort Hunter Liggett recognizes the QRP as one of the key components in meeting the challenges of the NET ZERO Waste Initiative. The program’s goal is to recycle at least 85% of all waste, to change the culture and to educate the community to achieve the Net Zero Waste goals.
The QRP procured Direct Sales contracts and started selling scrap metal, cardboard and paper. All money generated by the program comes back to the Installation.
Be Recycling Champions and great environmental stewards!
