This UFC describes appropriate practices for land disposal of non-hazardous solid waste during contingency operations for base camps with temporary and semi-permanent construction levels. (See UFC 1-201-01, Non-Permanent DoD Facilities in Support of Military Operations, for construction levels.) The goal is to balance Service members' health and safety, environmental protection, and field-expedient practices. If the HN does not have adequate infrastructure for managing solid waste, it is recommended that a contingency landfill be considered when a camp population is projected to grow to more than 500, when there is potential that the life expectancy of the base camp will be two years or more, and when, depending on combatant command (CCMD) policy, there are site conditions, resources, and logistics available to construct a landfill.
