Every year the 325th Civil Engineering Squadron hosts two recycling events:
Earth Day - April 22: The 325th CES partner with one of the local schools and the Child Development Center for Earth Day. They talk to students, teach them about the issues and have them participate in a poster contest and present prizes to the contest winners. They then set up outside of the Commissary and pass out literature while talking to base population about environmental issues.
America Recycles Day - Nov. 15: For Recycling Day the 325th CES spend the week prior dumpster diving at every dumpster on base. We remove, weigh and document the amount of recyclables we remove from the dumpsters. We also visit one of the local elementary schools and sponsor a class contest with the winning classes getting a trip to the recycling center on base and natural resources followed by a pizza party.
