Abstract : This study describes a preliminary assessment of Army hazardous waste production and disposal requirements, as defined by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 and the Environmental Protection Agency's Proposed Guidelines and Regulations and Proposal on Identification and Listing of Hazardous Waste. This study examined hazardous waste production at two military installations and a major Army hospital. Six major hazardous wastes were found: (1) waste oil/petroleum oil lubricant (POL) products, (2) solvent tank bottom sludges, (3) paint wastes, (4) pesticides and insecticides, (5) PCBs, and (6) medical/infectious wastes. Descriptions of the study surveys as they were conducted are given. A hazardous waste survey format, developed during this study for use by Facilities Engineers, is also provided. (Author)
