NEW! 24-Hour Cardboard Recycling Drop-Off Site

Located in the Dogwood Housing Community on Hall Ct.

Corvias Housing residents now have the opportunity to support DFMWR events and activities thanks to a pilot program for cardboard recycling in Housing. All residnets are encouraged to use the convenient 24-hour drop off location on Hall Ct. in Dogwood to recycle excess cardboard generated from PCS moves or everyday accumulated cardboard that can't wait for the next curbside recycling pick-up in Housing.

Recycling in On-Post Housing

Corvias Military Living supports recycling in on-post Housing. Curbside pickup of recyclables is coordinated by a private contractor. Recyclables that are picked up in Housing do not contribute to the JRTC & Fort Polk Net Zero Waste diversion but do assist in diverting waste from landfills.
