particular truck body. This compaction factor when multiplied by the volume
of material collected daily will give the cubic yards of uncompacted refuse
and salvage to be reported. Obtain compaction factors for as many kinds of
refuse materials as are being collected on the installation. Verify these
factors periodically and as required by changes in proportions or composition
of refuse and salvage materials.
220.127.116.11 Dump trucks and multiple containers. Since there is no
compaction device on special purpose vehicles such as dump trucks or multiple
containers, the measured size of each load delivered to a disposal facility or
transfer station will be the reported cubic yards collected in these vehicles.
18.104.22.168 Garbage cans, 32-gal size. Approximately six full 32-gal
garbage cans are equivalent to a cubic yard. The quantity collected in cans
will be computed on the basis of the number of cans serviced and the degree to
which the cans are filled.
22.214.171.124 Periodic weighings. Verify volumetric estimates and supply
usable data when evaluating the resource recovery potential of the
installation by periodically weighing containers.
126.96.36.199 Frequency of Collection
188.8.131.52 Depending on the rate of generation, type of waste, and
other considerations, collection may be made on a scheduled route basis or on
an unscheduled demand or call basis.
184.108.40.206 The following factors will be considered and evaluated to
determine the frequency of collection from each pickup station:
! types of refuse materials to be collected (garbage, ashes,
combustible or incombustible rubbish, or any combination
! methods of disposal (sanitary fill, incinerator, burning pit,
off-post or contract disposal. and salvage collection and
! requirements of service at installations (mess hall, barracks,
quarters, exchange or club, warehouse, shop, or storage facility)
! local geographical and climatic conditions (arctic, temperate,
tropical, dry or humid, high or low elevation)
! types of storage and collection equipment available and in use
(compactor trucks or multiple container equipment).
220.127.116.11 Keep frequency of collection to the minimum possible and
still maintain sanitary conditions. Recommended frequencies are
