Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited. This research investigates the hazardous waste reduction efforts of the Department of Defense and the Navy in the San Diego, California region. It shows that previous efforts to reduce cost and generated waste have not been successful. The study reveals that efforts by Fleet Industrial Supply Center, San Diego should reduce both costs and wastes and that the improvements in the pricing schedule used by the Public Works Center, San Diego to charge for hazardous waste processing services also should reduce costs. The research concludes that the best method to reduce costs is to reduce the waste stream. Further, more effort is needed to identify less or non-hazardous substitutes and waste treatment technologies should be investigated and implemented wherever possible. Lieutenant, United States Navy
