Recycling, Reusing, and Reinvigorating our world.

The FNL Green Team is dedicated to promoting ways that the FNL Community can be stewards of the environment at Fort Detrick and in our daily lives. This webpage contains web resources, tips, and upcoming 'Green' events to serve as a resource for the FNL Community to find information on how they can be ‘green’ at work and at home.

Recycle!

Look for the Recycled Reads boxes located in the lobbys of buildings 426, 560 and 549. Bring your gently read magazines and drop them off. The Green Team will donate them to local health care facilites for their patients and visitors to enjoy.

Also look for recycling bins located in the Café and throughout offices and labs.

The next plant swap will be at the Spring Research Festival. More details coming soon!
