The study develops basic information on solid wastes generated at San Francisco International Airport and alternative collection, transfer, and transportation systems that might demonstrate engineering feasibility and economic benefit. The weight and composition of solid wastes were derived from field data gathered from passenger terminals, air freight areas, including mail service facilities, aircraft service centers, and aircraft maintenance bases. Questionnaires were sent to national airports to determine their operating levels and the levels were then compared to those at San Francisco to ascertain whether the data derived there would be applicable on a nationwide basis. The report describes two collection systems of potential economic benefit to the airport complex that were selected from various alternatives evaluated.
