Abstract
This study of automation tested four different types of solid waste collection equipment. Employed were trucks with telescoping arms to pick up single family or multi-family plastic containers. The trucks could also be equipped with a yoke lift for dumping wheeled containers. Close and convenient transfer operations were made possible by use of a truck-to-trailer transfer method. Mechanization showed significant cost reductions, increased collection efficiency, improved city appearance, and better, safer working conditions for the collectors.
