WASTE MANAGEMENT FOR DEPLOYED FORCES

Waste Management for Deployed Forces provides guidance on conducting waste management operations while deployed and focuses on brigade level and below. It provides a better understanding of the waste streams generated during operations and provides guidance on minimizing the harmful effects of waste on human health, the environment, and the mission. It describes the planning necessary to estimate generated waste, based on unit functions and activities and provides guidance on generating and implementing waste management solutions to fulfill immediate and long-term waste requirements. While aimed at engineers, logisticians, transporters, environmental officers, preventive medicine (PVNTMED) personnel, and others who are primarily involved in waste management, it will enlighten commanders and staffs regarding the need to consider the waste generated during each phase of the operation and the importance of incorporating waste management during planning.
