This study evaluates the solid waste management system at the Jersey City Operation Breakthrough site and assesses the economic and technical practicality of the system application for future residential complexes. The installation was the first pneumatic trash collection system (PTC) used to collect residential refuse in the U.S. This report describes labor costs, rodents and vermin, odor, litter, and collection noise. The report also compares cost and operation of the PTC system with those aspects of conventional collection systems.
