A Review of Solid Waste Collection in The United States-1800-1950 720760
The problem of solid waste collection in the United States is not a new one. The problems of equipment standardization, vectors, aesthetics, and dust and odor control, to mention a few, were approached systematically as the need was recognized. This paper describes the transition from past to present collection practices. This developmental transition can serve as good background information upon which to build future collection technology.
