The report summarizes the findings derived from an in-depth study (PB-197 931) of a comparatively new technique being used to collect residential solid wastes. The system's operational details are presented and compared to more conventional methods. The relative efficiencies achieved by private and municipal operators are also outlined. The method involves the use of small, 3- or 4-wheeled vehicles that shuttle between dwelling unit storage points and a packer truck, which later takes the waste to a disposal site. The vehicles reportedly produce the best results in low- to medium-density housing areas where single-family homes predominate.
