The Department of Housing and Urban Development Operation Breakthrough programs demonstrate quieter, more sanitary, more convenient, and more economical waste collection systems within buildings, complexes, and municipalities. In the study summarized here, nine Operation Breakthrough sites were analyzed and compared as to economics, effectiveness, environmental factors, efficiency of operation, and acceptance by residents. Eight of the sites used various trash collection methods ranging from conventional curbside pickup to centralized compaction and pickup. The ninth site, Jersey City, New Jersey, used a pneumatic trash collection (PTC) system, the first installation of its kind in a residential complex in the U.S. This report summarizes the evaluation of the refuse management system at Operation Breakthrough sites, particularly the PTC system evaluation and the refuse system user acceptance surveys at eight of the nine sites.
