This report presents case studies of the solid waste disposal characteristics and resident attitudes about solid waste disposal methods at eight Operation Breakthrough sites. The data included in the report were obtained through on-site interviews of 1023 households and eight representatives of site management. The survey was conducted during the period of January through March 31, 1975. The report includes resident and management perceptions of the adequacy of trash storage and collection facilities and services, waste storage requirements and practices, and of the suitability of the system to the environment. The data do not constitute a technical evaluation of the solid waste management system at each facility and no on-site inspections of facilities were conducted to verify conditions reported by the residents. The findings do, however, represent user perceptions of the effectiveness of alternative methods of trash collection as those methods relate to different housing settings.
