Mandatory Recycling in DoD

Require all Federal and/or DoD installations to recycle. Not only that recycling is "available" but that it is MANDATORY.

The average estimates for installations that offer recycling is about 35% recycled. The goal is about 50%. In reality, we are federal employees and we know how to follow regulations. If recycling was required, we could make this percentage closer to 90% and provide HUGE cost avoidance savings. Definitely in the millions per year, possibly in the hundreds of millions.
