Abstract

Every year the average American throws out more and more garbage. In the next five years, it is projected to increase 20-25 percent. This garbage, termed solid waste, is stored, collected, hauled and disposed of in some manner. The objective of this report has been to evaluate the City of Kissimmee's one-man residential solid waste collection system. The study results indicated this generation rate of the City to be 3.28 pounds per person per day, or 29.1 pounds per home per pickup. The productivity equations developed from the City data did not compare well with the results of EPA. Also indicated in this report is the effect of the percent pickup factor in a solid waste collection system and its effect on system productivity.
