WHAT IS SURCHARGE AND HOW IS IT USED??

What is the surcharge?

A 5 percent surcharge is applied across the board to each customers total bill at checkout. This surcharge provides funds to build and maintain attractive, modern commissaries at a minimal cost in taxpayer dollars.

How is surcharge money used?

Surcharge dollars go right back into the stores. The funds pay for the construction of replacement stores, renovation, maintenance and repairs, equipment, and store-level information technology systems, such as the checkouts. No appropriated fund (tax) dollars are used for these purposes. The surcharge provides modern facilities for service members and their families, while simultaneously reducing overall taxpayer costs.

DeCA Committed to Earth-Friendly Practices:

DeCA's environmental management system (EMS) works year-round to help protect the environment by using sustainable work practices, recycling and diverting waste from landfills.

During 2016, DeCA recycled or diverted millions of pounds of material from reaching landfills. The agency recycled almost 1.12 million pounds of cardboard, over 3.7 million pounds of plastic, almost 421,000 pounds of metal, nearly 854, 000 pounds of wood and over 9.5 million pounds of pallets.

Commissaries also recycled almost 1.5 million pounds of bones and fats, almost 30,000 pounds of kitchen grease and recovered over 5 million pounds of organic products.

Another important facet of the agencys EMS is the food bank donation program. Over the program's five-year span the number of commissaries and food banks participating has risen each year.

To date, there are 144 commissaries working with 145 foodbanks to feed those less fortunate. In 2016, DeCA was able to donate 2.7 million pounds of edible but unsellable food to food banks around the country. As of March 2017, the agency had already donated almost 2 million pounds  an increase of more than 650,000 pounds compared with the same time last year.

DeCA is also pushing the needle in reducing both energy and water use in its facilities. Commissaries are energy-intensive facilities, and DeCA managed to save 2.5 percent in fiscal 2016, and annual water use intensity has been reduced by 23.6 percent from 2007.

Thanks to various energy-saving features such as modern refrigeration systems being added to its stores, commissaries are about 36 percent more energy efficient when compared to commercial supermarkets, and the agency has been able to meet the federal energy goal standard.

And in its stock assortment, DeCA carries a variety of "green" products -- organically grown fruits and vegetables, energy saving compact fluorescent and LED light bulbs, high-efficiency laundry products and environmentally friendly cleaning products.
