Air Force Wages war Against Waste

LACKLAND AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- On Nov. 15, the Air Force joined the rest of the nation in observing America Recycles Day, a nationally recognized initiative dedicated to encouraging people to recycle more at home, at work and on the go.

Successful recycling and solid waste diversion efforts across the Air Force through the past year have underscored the Air Force's commitment to environmental stewardship, not just on this date, but all 365 days of the year, officials said.

Any action that helps divert waste from landfills supports the Department of Defense strategic sustainability performance plan goal of diverting 50 percent of non-hazardous solid waste and 60 percent of construction and demolition waste by 2015 and beyond, officials added. Finding ways to reuse and recycle during construction and demolition projects not only protects the environment from several tons of waste, but also can lead to big savings.
