Abstract : At the request of HQ SAC/SGPB, the USAFOEHL conducted a hazardous waste staff assistance survey at Plattsburg AFB from 20 Apr 87 to 30 Apr 87. The scope of this survey was to address hazardous waste management practices and explore opportunities for hazardous waste minimization. The survey team performed a shop-by-shop evaluation of chemical waste management practices as well as met with hazardous waste managers and engineers to discuss the hazardous waste program. The results of our survey showed that the hazardous waste program at PAFB is informal. The Environmental Coordinator, DEEV, has the responsibility of training shop personnel, inspecting accumulation sites, reviewing finalized manifests and maintaining records. DEEV is not involved with the specific details of waste disposal. The program is primarily managed by the Defense Reutilization Management Office (DRMO), the bioenvironmental shop (BEE), and the shop generating the waste. Keywords: Hazardous waste, Waste reduction, Waste minimization, Hazardous materials.
