Board of Ed is decidedFort Drum will host spring cleanup dayDuring fiscal year 2011, Fort Drum garrison received revenue for more than 2,700 tons of recyclable materials. AlthoughFort Drum raked in about $952,000 during that time, recyclable materials still ended up in the trash, costing Fort Drummore than $340,000 in FY 11.Public Works Environmental Division team recognizes there is a lot the Fort Drum community can do to help clean up postand get recyclables where they belong, which is out of the trash and into proper receptacles.That is why they will host a postwide cleanup day from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 17 in the cantonment area and airfield, includ-ing barracks, buildings and motor pools. Soldiers, Families and civilians are encouraged to help out by picking up litteraround their facilities, turning in old / unused chemical cleaners, turning in unused electronic equipment, and recyclingold manuals or binders full of reports and other obsolete data. This cleanup day is designed to not only help the environ-ment, but it also provides a platform to educate Fort Drum personnel on the posts recycling program, and proper turn-inprocedures for recyclables, e-waste and hazardous waste. Only litter collected from the Fort Drum cantonment area andairfield will be accepted. Off-post generated waste will not be accepted. Those helping with the cleanup are asked to stayout of all construction sites and areas designated “off limits by order of the commander." Because Fort Drum has morethan 500 historic sites, participants also should beware of historic foundations and wells. Removing flagging / tags /signs from trees or stakes is not permitted. Also, avoid personnel should touching any ordnance if found during thecleanup, and call 772-7153 to report it. According to an executive order, by the end of fiscal year 2015, Fort Drum mustdivert at least 50 percent of construction and demolition solid waste and 50 percent of nonconstruction and demolitionsolid waste from landfills.Nonconstruction and demolition solid waste includes expended brass, cardboard, electronics, mixed metal and paper,newspaper, pallets, plastics, glass and motor oil. To help Fort Drum meet – and exceed – this goal, officials ask individu-als to come out May 17 and help keep post beautiful for everyone to enjoy.(Fort Drum Public Affairs Office)Comply with Fort Drum, New York state regulations on weaponsFort Drum officials remind residents to ensure they are in accordance with Fort Drum regulations and New Yorkstate laws when it comes to registering weapons.
