The Quantico Base Recycling program has made some improvements that will raise funds to support on-base activities, such as fireworks, the annual holiday tree lighting and other family programs. But the program needs support from the Quantico community to be a success. Marilis Porter, solid waste and recycling manager, said new, bright blue recycling bins are located behind the Marine Mart and the 7-day Store. Recycled items include cardboard, aluminum cans, glass bottles and jars, metal cans and plastic bottles. Do not recycle plastic bags. Recycled items are sorted and compacted by a new $96,000 baler, which Porter expects to pay for itself by the end of the year. “Everything we do helps,” said Porter. “Keep on recycling.”
