Volume 1 of this final report present the results of a one-year evaluation of a solid waste high-density baling plant, transportation and associated sanitary landfill operation of the American Hoist and Derrick Company in St. Paul, Minnesota. The work program consisted of four stages: (1) a five-day intensive monitoring program of the baling plant and bale transportation operations; (2) cost analysis during two years of plant operation; (3) a 12-month period of monitoring a bale test cell constructed at St.Paul bale landfill; and (4) a nine-month period of monitoring the bale sanitary landfill operation. Test cell monitoring included analyzing leachate and gas samples, recording and analyzing temperature trends, and settlement/expansion. Landfill monitoring included time and motion studies, fly emergence studies, and odor, litter, dust, and vectors evaluation. Comparisons were made between the bale landfill and normal environmental conditions. The feasibility of solid waste baling plants was evaluated, and compared to milling and combined solid waste baling and milling systems.
