(4) Multiple family quarters. One pickup station is for each building, unless
the buildings are grouped, so one pickup station can serve more than one building.
e. Truck Routes. The quantity of refuse accumulated daily within any one
collection area may vary. It is advisable to assign one truck to adjoining routes. The
truck crew can change the length of each route from day-to-day to allow for variations in
quantities and still cover its area on the scheduled weekly basis. Duplication and
overlapping of truck routes should be avoided. In order to collect refuse in a practical,
efficient, and economic manner, truck drivers should:
(1) Begin collecting materials at points farthest from disposal facilities so
there is a minimum of travel with a full load.
(2) Consider dead-end and one-way streets when planning collection routes.
(3) Cover steep grades at the beginning of the route, when the truck is partly
(4) Study the road network and traffic patterns.
(5) Avoid roads and streets with heavy traffic during rush hours, whenever
(6) Use side streets and secondary roads instead of primary roads to avoid
f. On-Post and Off-Post Transportation.
(1) On-post transportation. The generator (any unit and tenant) of general
waste places it in the dumpster. The Director of Logistics (DOL) is responsible for
general refuse transportation.
NOTE: The transfer of wastes from one vehicle to another or from one container to
another will be minimized to reduce the potential for spills.
(2) Off-post transportation. The DOL (installation commander) is responsible
for ensuring that off-post transportation is in compliance with applicable regulations, the
Waste Management Plan, and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
(3) Transportation of hazardous waste.
(a) The DOL has accountability, physical custody, and will make
arrangements for proper off-post transportation of hazardous materials and waste. The
DEH monitors this as in paragraphs 1-26 and 1-27 of AR 200-1.
