dining facilities - daily

transfer stations - daily and on demand are both common. Collection Point A collection point consists of two elements:  a container
and a location for the container.  The type, size, and location of containers
shall be determined first when designing or modifying a collection system. The
selection of the collection point is the responsibility of the base civil
engineer. Provide adequate and suitable containers at each pickup
station.  Suitable containers are cans, drums, bins, or similar portable
receptacles with tight-fitting lids that contain the contents and odors.  For
manually hoisted containers, fully loaded container weight shall be limited to
75 lb.  In selecting a site for storage containers, aesthetics is an important
consideration. Establish collection points easily accessible to collection
trucks and not more than 300 ft from the source of refuse material.  Provide
separate stations at the following locations:
! mess halls, exchanges, clubs, and similar facilities where
food is handled, stored, or dispensed
! temporary barracks
! separate family quarters
! multiple family quarters. Curbside or service-drive solid waste collection will be
used in family housing unless another system gives a cost or environmental
advantage to the government.  Use of other than curbside or service-drive
collection must be supported by an economic or environmental analysis.  It
will be retained in installation records. Separate Collection When solid wastes are separated at the point of storage into
various categories for recycling or resource recovery, collection frequency
shall be designated for each waste category. There are obvious advantages when all refuse can be
collected at one time.  Combined collections, which reduce handling and truck
trips and permit maximum use of collection vehicles, are strongly recommended.
The ultimate method of disposition, resource recovery potential, and the
degree of separation dictate the need for separate collections.  Separate
collections are generally made for the following conditions:
