SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Commit to recycle more
Schriever AFB is committed to preserving our community and the environment through improving recycling participation. The solid waste diversion rate or percentage of trash not placed in a landfill through recycling for fiscal 2013 was 48 percent. In order to reach the Air Force mandated diversion rate of 55 percent by fiscal 2015, everyone needs to commit to recycling. Schriever AFB utilizes a "single stream" recycling program, which makes recycling easy by placing all recyclables into the same container. For more information or questions, contact 567-4242 or 567-3910.
