Abstract:

The Pollution Prevention Annual Data Summary P2ADS tracks the Department of the Navys progress in meeting the Department of Defense Measures of Merit goals for solid waste, hazardous waste, and affirmative procurement. The Measures of Merit goal for hazardous waste calls for a 50 reduction of wastes transferred off site by 1999 using 1992 as a baseline. The Navy has exceeded the hazardous waste Measures of Merit goal for six consecutive years, 1997-2002. In Calendar Year 2002, the Navy reduced the amount of hazardous waste shipped off site by 73.5 using CY 1992 data as the baseline. The Measures of Merit goal for solid waste is to ensure the diversion rate for non-hazardous solid waste is greater than 40 by Fiscal Year 2005. This reduction must be accomplished while ensuring integrated non-hazardous solid waste management programs provide an economic benefit when compared with disposal using landfilling and incineration alone. For the fifth consecutive year, the Navy has exceeded the Measures of Merit goal with a 49 diversion rate. The economic benefit for 2002 also meets the goal with an integrated waste management cost avoidance of 25,465,537. Other select waste diversion decreased slightly from 68.52 in 2001 to 68 in 2002. Other select waste data, consisting of mostly construction and demolition debris, shows an increase in recycling percentages. Other select waste provides the extra diversion to help the Navy meet the Measures of Merit goal. Without other select waste the Navy would not have met its goal for 2002.
