Abstract:

Personnel from Natick Soldier Center NSC conducted a study at Ft. Campbell, KY 23 to 28 April 95, to determine the amount of solid waste generated during field feeding operations. With the U.S. Army-mandated need in mind, to identify waste mana, this field study attempted to collect specific information regarding the volume, weight and type of waste produced. These findings were obtained to aid in identifying equipment or procedures which will enhance management of field feeding waste. Fiberboard and paperboard were major contributors to the daily waste stream. Plastic contributed significantly to the waste stream metals also added substantial weight to daily field waste. Glass, while present, was a negligible contributor.
