Federal Correctional Institute Milan
Federal Correctional Institution - Milan
Our agency was established in 1930 to provide more progressive and humane care for federal inmates, to professionalize the prison service, and to ensure consistent and centralized administration of federal prisons.
FCI is the top waste reduction and recycling leader among the Federal Bureau of Prisons. With general prison security concerns, 390 staff members and 1456 inmates, keeping the facility "green" is no easy task. Their recycling efforts are outstanding, with collection 7 days a week and participation in both a pick-up and drop-off service. The FCI diverts everything from paper to scrap metal to fluorescent lights. FCI also encourages responsible waste practices by providing incentives to both its staff and inmates. Inmates working with the recycling program receive preferred eating times in meal rotation. "Special Acts Awards" are monetary rewards given to employees who are active in Environmental Concerns meetings and recycling innovation.
