Abstract:

At the request of HQ AFSCSGPB, the USAFOEHL conducted a hazardous waste staff assistance survey at Patrick AFB and Cape Canaveral AFS from 14 July 86 to 25 July 86. The scope of this survey was to address hazardous waste minimization. The survey team performed a shop-by-shop evaluation of chemical waste management practices as well as met with hazardous waste managers and engineers to discuss the hazardous waste program. The program was determined to be effective. Refinement of the program should include certification of the Air Force Management Laboratory for hazardous waste analysis, documentation of waste analysis procedures, expansion of analytical capability, reduction of the numbers of used oil analysis, and operation of a solvent recovery unit at Cape Canaveral AFS.
