How do I find Jacksonville military housing with recycling?

True heroes know how to do their part to make the world a better place - kudos to you on not only being a part of the military, but also for looking for ways to stay green! Fortunately, there is a lot of military housing in Jacksonville that offers eco-friendly accommodations. You won't have to worry about recycling while you're on base so long as you check out first!

Your first step is to check out the homepage. There is a lot to see, but what you should be on the lookout for is the big, green "Find Your Apartment" button - it would be hard to miss! Once you have clicked it, you'll be transported to where all the magic happens. The results page can be kind of overwhelming, since it does have over 300 options to play with while you search for the perfect base housing, but no worries - we'll navigate it together.

Scroll down until you run out of options on the left hand side. Then, click "Show advanced filters." The menu will then extend down, and you will see a category called "Green Efforts." To access it, click the blue plus sign next to it and a drop down list will extend. You will get options for Paper Recycling Available, Glass Recycling Available, and Plastic Recycling Available, among others. You check "Yes" for any and all of the ones that you would like, and your search will automatically narrow down to only the military housing in Jacksonville that has the recycling amenities you're looking for.

If you would prefer to take your recyclables to an off-site location, makes it really easy to find those as well. Check out the main page and click the "Find Your Apartment" button again. This time, you'll want to click "Distance from a Location," which is near the top of the screen. Here, you can input the address of a local recycling site and then adjust the distance to somewhere between 0 and 50 miles. Your search will then only show you military housing options that fit your specifications. No need to worry about your recycling efforts - by checking here, you can make sure to find base housing that's as green as you are!

Don't forget that there are other ways to stay eco-friendly as well. Cutting water and electricity usage is a major one. Taking shorter showers and only running full loads of dishes and laundry can help with water usage, and turning lights and other utilities off when you're not in the room is a major way to save electricity. Through some easy efforts, you can make your base housing even more green!

Thank you for making the effort to make the world a better place. I hope that this helped you, and if you ever have any other questions about military housing in Jacksonville, please feel free to reach out again. Happy apartment hunting!
