According to Arc Ecology, a San Francisco based marine and shore nonprofit specializing in toxic cleanups and related community issues, "the United States military produces more hazardous waste annually than the five largest international chemical companies combined."

Restoring environmental quality, habitats, wetlands and providing disadvantaged communities & communities of color with toxicological & environmental cleanup technical support is the focus of this Arc Ecology program.

When military bases close, it takes years for the economies of the communities surrounding these facilities to recover. Arc Ecology work economics program focuses on affordable housing, jobs for disadvantaged communities, investments in community benefits, business ownership opportunities for poor communities, and novel industrial development strategies for Brownfields.
