(2) Meet all requirements for managing permits, modification of permits,
reporting, and record keeping, to include the treatment, storage, or disposal of
hazardous waste and waste minimization (the biennial report of 40 CFR 262.41). The
most cost-effective and efficient means of waste storage, treatment, and disposal will be
used (existing, to be constructed, or modified) at a facility activity.
NOTE: Treatment means any method, technique, or process designed to change the
any reason, including making it safer or less voluminous (40 CFR 260.10).
NOTE: Storage means the holding of hazardous waste for a temporary period, after
which it is treated, disposed of, or stored elsewhere. A generating activity
becomes a de facto storer of hazardous waste if it fails to get rid of it in a timely
fashion (40 CFR 260.10).
: Disposal means the discharging, injecting, dumping, spilling, leaking,
of hazardous or solid waste into or on land or water so that the waste or
constituent thereof can be emitted into the air (burned) or discharged into
surface or ground water (40 CFR 260.10).
(3) Recommend changes in policies or procedures to improve program
management to the installation commander when necessary and advisable.
(4) Develop and implement a Solid and Hazardous Waste Plan that
establishes the procedures and responsibilities for managing said plan or program,
which includes waste minimization and resource recovery and recycling.
(5) Provide technical assistance and guidance and provide for analysis (Title
40 CFR 264.13) to waste generating activities in disposing of waste and hazardous
material. Requirements include certification of activities properly identifying,
segregating, and weighing materials pursuant to Federal, State, host nation, and Army
requirements prior to treatment, storage, or disposal or prior to offering transportation,
including to the DRMO.
(6) Review, periodically, such factors as number and location of pickup
stations, truck routes, type of equipment, scheduling, supervision, and use of personnel
to effectively manage solid waste.
(7) For asbestos management program, the DEH (for the Army National
Guard, the Facilities Management Office (FMO)) is to establish an Installation
Management Team, appoint an asbestos management control officer, and plan to
manage the program. The team is to consist of the:
(a) Director of Engineering and Housing.
(b) Environmental Officer.
