Legal and Other Requirements: a. EO: Executive Order 13423 -- Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management – directs Federal agencies to reduce the quantity of toxic and hazardous chemicals and materials acquired, used, or disposed of; increase diversion of SW as appropriate; and maintain cost effective waste prevention and recycling programs. b. EO 13514 – Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance- Divert from disposal at least 50 percent of nonhazardous solid waste, excluding construction and demolition debris, by the end of FY 2015. And divert from disposal at least 50 percent of construction and demolition materials and debris by the end of FY 2015. Page 1 of 3
Environmental Management Action Plan (EMAP)12. Program Description: The Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) concept was established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) in the early 1990’s to expand existing solid waste management initiatives. Instead of focusing only on the disposal of solid waste, ISWM includespreventing waste, minimizing the initial generation of materials through source reduction, reusing and recycling, and composting to reduce the volume ofmaterials being sent to landfills or incineration. The Army supports ISWM and sets regulations and goals for installations to reduce the generation of solidwaste.13.

Program Performance Tracking Annual Total Formula RationaleTarget #1 Amount of solid waste (tons) diverted divided by the total amount of waste (tons) generated.Target #2 Amount of awareness activities performed divide by the amount of required.Target #3 Amount of construction debris (tons) diverted divided by the amount of debris generated.17. Document ControlTechnical POC: Chief Environmental Division, Directorate of Public Works, Fort Buchanan PR Telephone: (787) 707-3575 / 3522Upon Garrison Commander concurrence memorandum for approval of this EMAP, the assigned SEMS Working Groups and responsible organizationsmust comply with the requirements established under Tasks/Action Items and core Objective(s) and Targets for the implementation of the EMAPs to thefullest extent possible, provide the EMS Coordinator with performance indicators data and supporting documentation for Program Performance Trackingpurposes. EMAP will be audited for EMS Program conformance and reviewed annually through the EQCC Meeting.18. ApplicabilityThis EMAP will apply to US Army Garrison Fort Buchanan (i.e. Directorates, Units, Tenants, and Commercial activities) including the US Army ReserveCenters located Island-wide.
