Abstract
The study was made to determine whether through the use of home compactors, the City of Atlanta could change their residential collection system from a twice per week, back-door service to once per week, curb-side service. The report summarizes the cost and efficiencies of the various systems evaluated. It also shows that through the use of home compactors, the change to less frequent service could be more easily made and that considerable savings could be realized by the city.
