Environmental Program Areas » Recycling
Take advantage of recycling programs available on post. Recycling is a simple way that you can help out the environment and preserve our natural resources from being depleted. Proceeds from USAG-HI's Qualified Recycling Program (QRP) help fund environmental projects and Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (FMWR) events for the community.
Recyclables can be dropped off at the Army Recycling Center, Schofield Barracks, during the Center's hours of operation. You MUST call ahead before taking wood and green waste to the Center (wait for appointment).
