The purpose of the report is to present information on the economic viability of a compartmentalized refuse collection vehicle for separate newspaper collection. The compartmentalized vehicle is compared to the rack and separate truck approaches. A model is developed for analyzing alternative collection approaches to minimize and/or compare applicable costs. The three methods are analyzed for their cost-effectiveness when newspaper revenue is $8/ton and $25/ton. The report concludes that the compartmentalized vehicle is economically viable.
