Qualified Recycling Program

The Qualified Recycling Program (QRP) is a U.S. military installation facility-managed and run recycling program aimed at:

·         Pollution prevention

·         Minimizing environmental impacts (i.e. recovering recyclable materials from solid waste disposal streams

Qualified recyclable materials are collected and segregated from other solid waste materials by the generating unit or activity where they are either sold direct via public sale or through established scrap sales programs.  The net proceeds from the sale of these recyclable materials are then deposited into the installation’s QRP account.
