Abstract : The purpose of this study was to provide decision makers with the information necessary to determine the optimal alternative to the current waste disposal strategy in view of the proposed EPA intent to regulate used oil as hazardous. Through the use of statistical analysis, forecasting techniques, and economic ratio calculations, re-refining was identified as the optimal solution for the Air Force Logistics Command (AFLC). Analysis of the results indicated two major problem areas in the current waste oil management program: 1) A lack of funding for the AFLC PACER REDUCE data base project, and 2) The lack of forecasting capability in the Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service (DRMS) data base.
