Joint Region Commits Navy to Guam’s New Bottle Recycling Act


Guam – Joint Region Marianas has issued a statement saying that they support the Guam Beverage Container Recycling Act.

Senator Tina Muna Barnes’ Bill 149 was signed into Public Law  221 last year. It creates a bottle recycling program on Guam.

A release from Joint Region quotes Read Admiral Paul Bushong as committing his support to the program.

“I give my commitment to work toward the military’s meaningful participation in the program. Participation by the base exchanges and commissaries requires a cooperative effort of various off-island military procurement offices. I will continue to work with these commands toward full participation.”

The release concludes that “Joint Region Marianas supports the efforts for a ‘One Guam, Green Guam.'”
