The Fort Gordon Recycling Center's mission is to divert material from the landfill by recycling as much as possible. The center offers dumpster and recyclable pickup service for many on-post buildings.

Fort Gordon Recycling is always looking for new brokers/buyers for recycled material. Interested parties, please contact Marcus Bethune at +1 (706)791-0132.


Drop Off locations accept household recycling items from on- and off-post residents. Accepted materials include cardboard, paper, plastics (1 and 2) and aluminum cans.

There are 3 recycling drop-off locations on Fort Gordon:

  • At Wainwright Circle off of Kilbourne
  • At the Commissary, in the side parking lot nearest the PX
  • At Tenth Street and Chamberlain Avenue

The Recycling Center accepts scrap metal, toner cartridges and pallets​​ (​Scrap metal is accepted on Tuesdays and Thursdays only).
