The delivery of solid wastes services involves a complex interaction of men, machinery, and politics. Despite these complexities, very little reliable information on solid waste management systems is available to decision makers. In recognition of this problem of data scarcity, a study was initiated on a pilot scale to collect reliable, uniform and continuous data from solid waste collection routes. The purpose of the study was to provide insight and experience into the collections of solid waste data which would be useful for national comparisons. In the paper, the pilot study is discussed, and a case study illustrating the evolution of the pilot study into a management information system for solid waste collection is presented. (Author)
