donation programs
Geographic Coverage:Fort Benning, Georgia
Abstract:The majority (64%) of the waste stream at Fort Benning is organic waste. Another 9% of the waste stream is non-recyclable municipal solid waste (MSW). These two categories of waste have high potential for diversion through donation. The rest of the waste stream is made up of recyclable materials. To decrease the organic waste, food donation programs at the installation's 25 dining facilities and single commissary should be implemented. To decrease the amount of non-recyclable MSW that is generated, donation programs should be implemented at the installations numerous training barracks and general purpose warehouses. The Columbus metropolitan statistical area has significant poverty. Census data indicates that poverty is concentrated in black women under the age of 18. There are numerous non-profit organizations that serve the area, and these organizations can be partnered with for donation programs. The road to creating successful donation programs at Fort Benning begins with identifying the correct buildings, and community partners, and using the guidance found in this document to take the necessary steps forward.
