Net Zero Waste

April 19, 2011, Fort Hood was selected as a Net Zero Waste pilot installation to reach zero landfill by the year 2020. This new challenge brings re-energized awareness on the importance of the Sustainability Program and helps to highlight where Fort Hood needs to prioritize limited resources.

In Fiscal Year 2014, the municipal solid waste diversion rate was increased to 49%, and Fort Hood has decreased the amount of material that enters the landfill by 25% over the past few years. However, Fort Hood still puts 50 tons of waste into the landfill every day, so we have a long way to go to reach our goal of zero waste by 2020. The entire installation looks forward to improving our diversion rates and increasing the amount of material recycled by overcoming obstacles and working together to make NZW and sustainability a reality at The Great Place.

We are creating a culture that recognizes the value of sustainability measured not just in terms of financial benefits, but benefits to maintaining mission capability, quality of life, relationships with local communities and the preservation of options for the Army's future.
