Abstract:

At the request of HQ MACLGMW, THE AFOEHL conducted a hazardous waste technical assistance survey at Lajes Field from 11-14 Jun 90. The scope of this survey was to address hazardous waste management practices and explore opportunities for hazardous waste minimization. The survey team performed a shop-by-shop evaluation of chemical waste management practices and met with hazardous waste managers and engineers to discuss the hazardous waste program. Recommendations include 1 Amend training to include specific examples of Lajes Field operations. 2 Upgrade satellite accumulation sites. 3 Verify proper disposal of waste oil by local contractor. 4 Treat perchloroethylene sludge as a hazardous waste. 5 Amend the base spill plan to address specific requirements for calling on the base Spill Response Team. 6 Evaluate the operating efficiency of the hospital incinerator.
