Dogwood Community, Fort Polk, LA –Dogwood residents have been recycling since May 2015. The recycling container is located on Holmund Street. The pilot program has collected 1,328 pounds of recyclable cardboard, during May and June. The JRTC & Fort Polk Recycling Center sells the collected cardboard. The participation in the Corvias 24-hour drop-off location has been positive. If the pilot is successful, the next step will be to expand this pilot to all Housing areas on South Fort Polk.
In order to make this pilot successful, pilot partners (Corvias Military Living, Red River Waste Solution, The JRTC & Fort Polk Recycling Center and the Net Zero Waste team) ask users of the Corvias 24-hour drop-off to remember the following items:
- The cardboard recycling drop-off in the Dogwood community area is only for the collection of cardboard. Do not place other recyclables (ex. plastic bottles, aluminum cans, wood, etc.) or trash inside the bin.
- Cardboard soiled with food, grease or biohazards is unacceptable for recycling. Do not place this contaminated cardboard in the cardboard bin.
Collecting other recyclables, trash, or contaminated cardboard, in this bin will lead to the contamination of all recycling – potentially causing the entire contents of the bin to be thrown away as trash. Please be considerate when using the bin. NO GLASS, PLEASE!!
The Dogwood 24-hour cardboard recycling drop-off point offers Housing residents a place to recycle excess cardboard. The collected cardboard, at this location, is taken to the JRTC & Fort Polk Recycling Center. The sale of recyclables at the installation-recycling center are returned to the post. Profits benefit various quality of life programs and activities for Soldiers and family members. Recycling sales support DFMWR activities such as the Freedom ‘Fest fireworks, this year’s Trace Adkins and Lonestar concerts, and the annual Youth Catfish Derby. Please continue making this drop-off location successful by keeping your cardboard clean and trash free.
A typical family consumes 182 gallons of soda, 29 gallons of juice, 104 gallons of milk and 26 gallons of bottled water a year. That's a lot of containers - make sure they're recycled!
