For disposal of light fractions, it is mandatory for townhouse & stairwell residents to use yellow bags, because this kind of trash is recyclable. Yellow bags are available for on-base residents at the Self-Help Store during office hours: Monday–Friday from 8 a.m.–6 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m.–4 p.m. The use of yellow bags is also mandatory for local economy housing. The bags are free of charge and provided by your local recycling center.

Items that belong in the yellow bag: Plastics, foils, milk cartons, metals etc …

Items that don’t belong in the yellow bags: Glass, shoes, paper, spray cans etc …

For on-base residents please, check the Reduce, Reuse & Recycle Booklet you received during your move-in inspection for more information.  To receive a replacement booklet, please come to the KMC Housing Office Facilities Section on Vogelweh to pick one up.


Townhouse residents should keep their yellow bags inside until pick-up day, in order to avoid damage which could be caused by bad weather conditions or animals. Recycle Bag Holders can be picked up at the Self-Help Store, free of charge. Please contact the KMC Housing Office at KMCHousing@us.af.mil or call 489-7108, commercial 0631-536-7108, if you have questions.
