Images: Make a difference: understanding Pendleton’s recycling program [Image 5 of 6]
Marines and employees at Camp Pendleton's Recycling Center separate the daily five-ton load of trash and recyclables on a conveyor belt to effectively produce non-contaminated, reusable products. Once the reusable materials are separated from the trash, the remaining soiled products are disposed of in the base landfill. Although recycling participation high on base, the man-hours that are used to extract trash from recycled products are excessive. Pendleton officials are asking base occupants to be aware of good recycling habits in order for its benefits to be truly effective.
