Robins Air Force Base receives federal environmental award
The award recognizes teams that support mission readiness through their environmental activities. The 78th Civil Engineer Group Environmental Management Branch implemented a recycling program that diverts more than 2,200 tons of recyclables from landfills every year. The unit also started a community-partnered transportation incentive program and a robust water quality program that manages 549 million gallons of wastewater per year.
“Our organization won this DOD Environmental Quality Industrial Installation Award in 2013, so this is ‘back-to-back’ recognition. It truly takes a team of dedicated people and installation partnering to excel at this level,” said Otis Hicks, the 78th CEG Director.
