Abstract : This thesis examines the current waste paper recycling program at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey. The thesis evaluates the costs and benefits of the existing recycling program and a new revised waste paper recycling program. The thesis shows that a new program can be implemented and increase the benefits to the school by $6,000 per year. It shows inefficiencies in the current Solid Waste disposal practices. It also shows that the Public Works Department, Supply Department and Morale Welfare and Recreation Departments must work together to make recycling work. In addition to waste paper recycling, this thesis identifies a need for increased cardboard recycling, as well as source reduction.
