c. Collection. All solid waste that contains garbage should be collected at least
twice weekly. Frequent collection service requires less storage capacity. Collection
services provided by municipal or private agencies should be utilized whenever possible
to ensure regular removal of the solid waste. In areas where solid waste collection and
disposal services are not available, the owner or operator of the mobile home
development must provide this service.
4-12. INSECT AND RODENT CONTROL
a. Insect and rodent control in mobile home parks is necessary to protect the
health and property of the residents. Insects and rodents are capable of transmitting
diseases to man and other animals by bites or by indirect contact. They also may
cause property damage by gnawing or chewing.
b. The owner or operator of a mobile home park can usually control small,
localized insect or rodent infestations. However, a competent professional pest control
operator should handle widespread infestation, particularly if large-scale chemical
treatment procedures are used.
a. Mobile home production has increased steadily since the mid-1940s.
Although few Army posts have mobile home parks, the preventive medicine specialist
does inspect off post parks and needs to know relevant health problems. In addition,
during emergencies or mobilization, Army posts may set up mobile home parks which
must maintain sanitation standards.
b. AR 40-5 states the sanitation standards for mobile home parks. The major
areas discussed are:
(2) Space allowances.
(4) Water supply.
(5) Disposal of liquid and wash water.
(6) Human waste disposal.
(7) Service buildings.
(8) Ground sanitation.
