Abstract:

This report concerns the assignment of responsibilities for solid waste operations and management in the DoD. Although it is policy that resource recovery should be practiced through the DoD, no office in OSD has been directly charged with that specific responsibility. Sililarly, specific responsibility for avoidance of waste has not been directly assigned to any office. It is concluded that organizational improvements alone are not sufficient to achieve widespread resource recovery efforts throughout the DoD. Specific objectives and a plan for implementation of a resource recovery program are essential prerequisites the report offers an approach to a plan.
