APPENDIX A
OJE HAZARDOUS WASTE GENERATION


Hazardous waste can become a significant problem. Failure to have policies and procedures in place to deal with the hazardous waste you create is foolish and a recipe for failure. This appendix provides an example of the types and volumes of hazardous waste that can be generated. The wastes identified in the chart provide a one-year snapshot (1996) of the hazardous waste generated by U.S. forces in support of Operation JOINT ENDEAVOR. About 38 percent of the waste was generated in Hungary, and about 62 percent was generated in Bosnia-Herzegovina/Croatia.
