One of the provisions of the Operation Breakthrough program in the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Policy Development and Research, is to evaluate the refuse management systems to determine economic and technical practicality for application to future projects. The nine sites are Indianapolis, Kalamazoo, Macon, Memphis, St. Louis, Seattle, Sacramento, King County, and Jersey City. The evaluations show how the methods employed at the Macon, Memphis, Sacramento, and King County sites are economical and effective. The Jersey City site utilizes pneumatic trash collection and a separate report is being prepared to assess the technical and economic performance of the system.
