Recycling contract turns trash to treasure

Capt. Lynn Thompson, the waste management officer for Joint Base Balad, Iraq, poses during a ribbon-cutting ceremony for an Iraqi-run recycling center Thursday, July 11, on post. Thompson, a member of the 76th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, Indiana National Guard, helped to ensure the contract with the Iraqi-based Almandhour United Co., moved forward through the Iraqi-Based Industrial Zone initiative. The Air Force's Joint Contracting Command-Iraq also assisted with drawing up the contracts, which will allow the recycling center to ship more than a ton of aluminum, steel, cardboard and plastics products off JBB daily and sell them on the Iraqi market.
