||Perhaps between 75 to 80 percent of a solid waste system cost is due to storage, collection, and transportation, the remainder being attributable to disposal. Although a community may have an accurate estimate of what it is spending on its system, it often is uncertain as to whether or not it is receiving reasonable value in the benefits returned; i.e., it has little or no idea of its 'cost effectiveness.' This report presents the results of a project that focused on the systematic development of a set of measures and measurement tools that could be used to assess the effectiveness of solid waste storage, collection, and transportation practices. The project included a pilot test of the measurement methodology in an urban community. The measurement system presented in this report is intended to support municipal decision-makers who have responsibility for such services as mixed refuse collection, street and alley cleaning, sanitary code enforcement, sanitation education, and other related activities.
