Abstract : On November 8, 1984, the U.S. Congress signed into public law the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) act establishing a national policy on waste minimization. Regulations created to support the HSWA require hazardous waste generators to develop and follow a hazardous waste minimization program. Moreover, the Department of Defense has established a goal of 50 percent reduction in hazardous waste generation by 1992 (compared to 1985 generation data). After studying hazardous waste generation and current methods of treatment, storage, and disposal, researchers conducted feasibility and economic analyses of hazardous waste minimization options and prepared a hazardous waste minimization (HAZMIN) plan for Fort Riley, KS.
