Little has been written about the operational and economic problems affecting specific communities on solid waste problems. To provide some insight into local problems, a case-study approach was used to examine a sample midwestern city (approximately 500,000 population) with solid waste management problems similar to most other medium-to-large urban communities. Changes in the productivity of solid waste collection crews brought about by substituting capital for labor are studied. The economic effects of solid waste management costs on residents are analyzed by comparing solid waste costs with disposable income. (Author)
