2 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, March 27, 2014 From NAVFAC Southeast, Environmental Kings Baye general public has popularized the term eWaste to describe elec tronics that can no longer be used and in the past the popular method for getting rid of electronic equip ment was to throw them in the trash. However, we now know that the components that make up the ma jority of the electronics that we use contain materials that can be harm ful to the environment if left in a landll and allowed to leach out into the surrounding soil. So what is the best method avail able for getting rid of used and/or outdated electronic equipment that can no longer be used. Well, the answer at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay depends upon where the elec tronic equipment is that you want to get rid of and the paragraphs below will outline the guidelines that are to be followed depending whether you are at work at Kings Bay or utilize the family housing area that is still on government property but considered outside of the fence. Electronic Waste Management: DOD Property e electronic equipment that you use to conduct your day-to-day duties at Kings Bay is considered a subset of Government property and the disposal of Government prop erty is the responsibility of DLA Dis position Services per DOD 4160.21M, Defense Material Disposition Manual.

Afterwards, the oce where the equipment is located will have to coordinate with DLA in order for them to take custody of the equipment. It is very important to check electronic equipment for any Secret, Classi ed and Tempest or Hazardous indicators prior to turn-in.

Are electrical cords in good con dition, not frayed or cracked? Are electrical outlets overloaded in your home? Are electrical cords kept out from beneath furniture and rugs? Do all outlets and light switch work? Never use water on an electrical re, you could get shocked.

April Fools Day is just around the corner again. I told you last year about how my no-nonsense father used to wake us up by yelling Oh no, its snowing, every April 1, and how wed jump out of bed to look out the window on a beautiful spring day. Also last year, Pfc. Sean Bartolowitz told you how to tape the spray nozzle down so people get sprayed when they turn on the faucet and PO2 A.J. Kuhl told you to put glit ter in car vents. Heres some new ideas.Heres some good ideas for April Fools DayAlberto Ortiz Retired Navy Vega Alta, P.R. I called my mother and asked her if the refrigera tor was running. She said yes, so I said, You better get it before it runs out the back door. MA2 Kevin Kithcart Strategic Weapons Facility Atlantic Charleston, S.C. Set your re-enlistment date for April 1, and when its time to swear in, say, April Fools. Im not reenlisting. Im not doing that though. I just reenlisted.

Up eriscope with Bill Wesselho their physical readiness, he said. Its great that you can ace your assessment, but its as equally impor tant to ask yourself how you are helping your shipmate. A Senior Chief Petty Of cer asked what the Navy is going to do for Sailors coming from their A school. In his opinion, they arent as technically savvy as their predeces sors. Stevens reminded him that A school is where Sailors are taught the basics of their technical rat ing. In my travels throughout the eet, Ive wit nessed the wonderful training that our instruc tors are doing, it is up to the leaders on the deck plates to build on that ba sic knowledge, Stevens said. It is our charge to train them on advanced techniques. Toward the end of the call, a Sailor stood and asked about the rum blings shes read in mili tary newspapers. I read that there is go ing to be a change in ad vancement for junior Sail ors, she said. Stevens answered, Unless the Chief of Naval Per sonnel signs a naval mes sage about a change in our advancement system, its only speculation and talk. After answering this, Stevens acknowledged that there may be uncer tainty among the ranks. We recognize there may be anxiety with regard to proposals, but re member that our greatest weapons system is unit morale, he said. Were working hard to operate under the highest levels of morale; leadership is ghting the good ght. When asked about en listed female Sailors on submarines, Stevens answered, Senior leaders in our Navy have a responsi bility to set the conditions and provide opportunities for ocer and enlisted female Sailors to serve on board submarines, and that is precisely what we are doing.MCPONFrom Page 1 10 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, March 27, 2014

2 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, March 27, 2014 From NAVFAC Southeast, Environmental Kings Baye general public has popularized the term eWaste to describe elec tronics that can no longer be used and in the past the popular method for getting rid of electronic equip ment was to throw them in the trash. However, we now know that the components that make up the majority of the electronics that we use contain materials that can be harmful to the environment if left in a landll and allowed to leach out into the surrounding soil. So what is the best method available for getting rid of used and/or outdated electronic equipment that can no longer be used. Well, the answer at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay depends upon where the electronic equipment is that you want to get rid of and the paragraphs below will outline the guidelines that are to be followed depending whether you are at work at Kings Bay or utilize the family housing area that is still on government property but considered outside of the fence. Electronic Waste Management: DOD Property e electronic equipment that you use to conduct your day-to-day duties at Kings Bay is considered a subset of Government property and the disposal of Government property is the responsibility of DLA Disposition Services per DOD 4160.21M, Defense Material Disposition Manual. DLA Dispositions responsibility to dispose of Government-owned electronics has been codied in DODs Electronics Stewardship Implementation Plan. e disposal of work-related electronics computers, printers, computer peripherals, stereos, TVs, etc. that are considered government property are to be turned over to DLA Disposition Services. e oce where the electronic equipment is used must rst declare these electronics as excess and must prepare a DD Form 1348 and forward it to DLA Disposition Services Regional oces in Jacksonville, Florida. Afterwards, the oce where the equipment is located will have to coordinate with DLA in order for them to take custody of the equipment. It is very important to check electronic equipment for any Secret, Classied and Tempest or Hazardous indicators prior to turn-in. Receipt, storage and transportation procedures are referenced in the Defense Materiel Disposition Manuel, DOD 4160.21M. Electronic Waste Management: NON-DOD/Personal Property DLA Disposition cannot accept property that is not owned by the government. Recycling or disposal of personal electronic equipment can be done by utilizing a number of outside community programs that have been established to make turning in electronic equipment easy. Community sources for recycling of e-waste as follows: BHosted is a computer repair company that oers free electronic recycling. ey will use what they have a need for and recycle the rest. BHosted is located at 860C Kings Bay Road in Kingsland. e St. Marys Board of Education uses Diversied Asset Recovery in Orlando, Florida for their recycling needs.

April Fools Day is just around the corner again. I told you last year about how my no-nonsense father used to wake us up by yelling Oh no, its snowing, every April 1, and how wed jump out of bed to look out the window on a beautiful spring day. Also last year, Pfc. Sean Bartolowitz told you how to tape the spray nozzle down so people get sprayed when they turn on the faucet and PO2 A.J. Kuhl told you to put glitter in car vents. Heres some new ideas.Heres some good ideas for April Fools DayAlberto Ortiz Retired Navy Vega Alta, P.R. I called my mother and asked her if the refrigerator was running. She said yes, so I said, You better get it before it runs out the back door. MA2 Kevin Kithcart Strategic Weapons Facility Atlantic Charleston, S.C. Set your re-enlistment date for April 1, and when its time to swear in, say, April Fools. Im not reenlisting. Im not doing that though. I just reenlisted.

William Manning Security Force Battalion Milton, Mass. Take two pigs from a herd and spray paint and on them and let them loose again.

MM3 Tyler Kotson Trident Training Facility Kerrville, Texas Put your buddys car for sale on craigslist. Somebody did that to me, and my phone wouldnt stop ringing. Up eriscope with Bill Wesselho their physical readiness, he said. Its great that you can ace your assessment, but its as equally important to ask yourself how you are helping your shipmate. A Senior Chief Petty Ofcer asked what the Navy is going to do for Sailors coming from their A school. In his opinion, they arent as technically savvy as their predecessors. Stevens reminded him that A school is where Sailors are taught the basics of their technical rating. In my travels throughout the eet, Ive witnessed the wonderful training that our instructors are doing, it is up to the leaders on the deckplates to build on that basic knowledge, Stevens said. It is our charge to train them on advanced techniques. Toward the end of the call, a Sailor stood and asked about the rumblings shes read in military newspapers. I read that there is going to be a change in advancement for junior Sailors, she said. Stevens answered, Unless the Chief of Naval Personnel signs a naval message about a change in our advancement system, its only speculation and talk. After answering this, Stevens acknowledged that there may be uncertainty among the ranks. We recognize there may be anxiety with regard to proposals, but remember that our greatest weapons system is unit morale, he said. Were working hard to operate under the highest levels of morale; leadership is ghting the good ght. When asked about enlisted female Sailors on submarines, Stevens answered, Senior leaders in our Navy have a responsibility to set the conditions and provide opportunities for ocer and enlisted female Sailors to serve onboard submarines, and that is precisely what we are doing.MCPONFrom Page 1 10 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, March 27, 2014
