recycling of used oils and solvents is discussed in Section 4.4.  The military
specification (MIL-F-2495) that allows the reclamation of used oils and
solvents is given in Table 4-3-2A.  Both of these methods are resource
conservation measures because the original products do not enter the waste
stream and require disposal.

_________________
(1)
FOR (Fuel Oil Reclaimed) shall be essentially free of chlorinated
material.  To determine the presence of chlorinated material, a clean
copper wire is heated in a clear blue gas flame (to red heat) until no
green shows in the flame.  The wire is dipped while still hot (into a
sample of  FOR) and then put back into the flame.  No green shall show
in the flame.  (For practice, a blend of 1% trichloroethane in DFM or
other distillate fuel may be used as a sample of an oil that fails this
test. The oil should be purged of any sodium chloride by washing with
fresh water.)
(2)
(Or other approved ASTM method.)  In the United States, sulfur limits
shall be as specified by the EPA, state, or community where the fuel is
to be used, whichever is more restrictive.  In foreign countries, the
sulfur limit shall conform to the limit established in the Status of
Forces Agreement.
4.3.3  Material Conservation.  Another method of resource conservation is
to reduce the amount of material used to make certain products.  Normally,
this will have very little effect on military installations.  However, there
are three ways in which material conservation can be encouraged on military
installations.  (1) Encourage purchase of materials with a minimum amount of
packaging.  Many times the packaging in a shipment is larger or heavier than
