Abstract
DRES has developed a Waste Management Program to address the issue of Hazardous Waste Generated by Establishment Research and Development Activities. The types of waste generated are typical of industrial or university chemical laboratories but include several types of special waste streams such as radioactive tracers, chemical warfare agent residues, biological materials as well as old chemical-filled ordnance items found on the dres experimental proving ground. The report outlines the key elements of the DRES Hazardous Waste Management Program and describes procedures for the proper collection, storage and disposal of specific types of hazardous waste.
