Recycling Program Mission Statement:

The United States Army Reserve is committed to a comprehensive recycling program that encourages each Reserve Soldier, family member, civilian, and contractor to respond to our collective responsibility to be better stewards of our natural environment and to pass down a planet to future generations that is better than we found it.
Recycling Program Objective:
The purpose of the Army Reserve Recycling Program is to prevent pollution, reduce waste, and conserve natural resources through the diversion of material destined for incineration or landfill disposal. Our recycling program serves to create awareness, train and educate in reducing, reusing, and recycle to foster programs to promote solid wastes reduction and waste prevention through the management of recyclables while complying with executive orders, Department of Defense and Army policies that supports Net Zero Waste 20/20 and beyond.
Our Recycling Program mission includes:
1. Sustainability - Meeting or exceeding the mandates established in relevant laws, regulations, and Executive Orders thus ensuring the productive and sustainable use of our solid waste landfills while conserving energy and consuming less of precious natural resources.
2. Reporting - To keep US Army Reserve recycling practices as clear as possible and free of charge so that each of our residents feels secure in using the service.
3. Availability - Dropping off the recyclable must be quick and trouble-free.
4. Application - Regularly evaluate our operation to respond to relevant emerging issues and to improve our management practices to guarantee the ongoing integrity of our mission.​
