Abstract : One means of improving solid waste collection efficiency is through the use of mathematical modeling and other analytic techniques. The research effort briefly summarizes some of the more significant efforts i quantifying solid waste collection and transportation systems. These techniques are described and evaluated for potential Air Force use.
