In fiscal year 2016, Sheppard collected 334.14 tons of cardboard, reselling it at its current price of $195 per ton resulting in not only earning approximately $65,000, but also saving the base nearly $10,400 in landfill costs. Since President Obama signed Executive Order 13693, “Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade,” March 19, 2015, Sheppard’s direction became specifically focused on efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through areas such as a smaller footprint in landfills.

Since the start of the “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” campaign in the mid-1980s, green movements have continually been a part of the overall global effort to better the planet’s environment. Over 30 years later, that goal hasn’t changed and Sheppard’s recycling program is targeting ways to reduce landfill waste. “Recycling is a Team Sheppard effort—a real way for each of us to truly make a difference,” said Donna Sykes, contracting officer representative over Recycling. “In order to make recycling efficient and effective, we all need to pitch in.”
