22.214.171.124 Sharing ideas. Lessons learned at one installation will
save time and effort at other installations. An annual Tri-Service meeting on
the sole subject of RRRPs would be an excellent way of presenting useful

determine whether installations with qualified RRRP's are receiving
goods from installations without RRRP's. This practice is not
recommended. Each installation shall establish its own RRRP even if
some support is required from another installation.

materials falls between two extremes: source separation and disposal site
