This report provides details on a waste assessment method for obtaining data on the characteristics and degree of availability of the solid waste generated at a Navy activity. The data will be used in the design of a waste-to-energy facility, such as a heat recovery incinerator HRI or a resource recovery facility. The assessment method is conducted on 25 to 30 randomly chosen days over a 1-year period. The use of standard statistical techniques adds validity to the evaluation methodology and ensures that the results can be used with confidence in a waste-to-energy facility design. Statistical data on quantity, composition, and fuel characteristics are generated through the waste assessment method and are expressed in terms of the mean, standard deviation, and the variance of these parameters. The proposed survey methodology involves three steps 1. Determine the number of samples required to achieve a specified level of data validity. 2. Develop a sampling schedule, and then use the three sampling techniques to collect data for the statistical analysis. 3. Use the statistical analysis procedure to characterize the Navy activity wastes based on sample results.
