Other EPA Headquarters Facilities
In addition to EPA's facilities at Federal Triangle and 1310 L Street in Washington, DC, the Potomac Yard Offices in Arlington, Virginia, and current satellite offices, EPA Headquarters occupied space in two buildings in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area that it no longer occupies:
- Building A, 6810
- Woodword & Lothrop Building

- On December 20, 2005, EPA agreed to a three-year green power contract (procured by the Defense Energy Support Center) for its Headquarters facilities. From February 1, 2006, to January 31, 2009, EPA received 8.25 million kilowatt hours (kWh) per year in the form of renewable energy certificates (RECs). The purchase, which offset 100 percent of the facilities’ annual electricity consumption, supported the generation of renewable energy at wind farms in Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Wyoming.
Waste Reduction and Recycling
- Between August 2003 and May 2004, EPA successfully instituted a new recycling program at its Headquarters facilities throughout the DC metropolitan area. The goals of the program are to standardize recycling procedures at the numerous Headquarters locations, increase employee participation, and increase the recycling rate. The revised program focuses on mixed office paper, newspaper, cans, plastic and glass bottles, corrugated cardboard, and toner cartridges.
