Preliminary and conceptual designs of alternative approaches to a small-scale solid waste transferresource recovery station were developed. Equipment components and processes were examined, and their life-cycle costs were compared. Selected modules were combined to process two types of solid waste 1 completely mixed waste and 2 waste from which most glass and metals had been source-segregated. All system designs were ranked according to life-cycle cost. A solid waste two-component source-segregation experiment was then conducted to resolve questions of workability and to quantify the associated effectiveness and cost factors. In addition, a computer program was developed to aid in the economic analysis of proposed changes in waste practices, such as implementation of source segregation, resource recovery, and transfer station operations.
