This study effort on solid waste management was designed to determine productivity and efficiency measures for 11 specifically defined systems. The systems were defined in terms of type of equipment, crew size, frequency of collection, point of collection, collection methodology and incentive system. Bags and cans were prescribed as the storage containers for all systems. The analysis was made in terms of these factors and is contained in Volume 2 of this report. In addition, an analysis was made of the productivity, efficiency, and collection costs of these systems.
