Abstract:

The report presents the results of engineering studies of the feasibility of on-site compaction systems for increasing the efficiency of storage, collection and handling of general trash wastes from Naval installations and for determining criteria for selection of compaction systems. Field investigations were made of present methods and costs of storing, collecting and hauling solid wastes at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center, Illinois, and at a number of Naval installations at San Diego, California. A survey was made of commercially available compaction systems. Evaluation was made of the application and cost effectiveness of compaction systems. Author Modified Abstract
