15 Advantages/ disadvantages auto refuse collection Advantages Disadvantages Wheeled containers easy for residents to take to curb Capacity of auto loading cans 3 to 4 times that of regular cans Reduced workers compensation costs Capacity of auto refuse truck stops per route Startup costs (may be mitigated as current fleet needs replacement) Costs of containers Public educational component Special smaller cans for over 55 y.o.a and special handicaps at request

16 What is automated collection? Single operator pickup and dumps carts using articulated arm Highly productive Increases efficiency Increase workers safety Decreased labor costs

17 Collection related injury – other towns/ cities Little Egg Harbor NJ 200 days to 0 Santa Cruz, Ca 300 to 0 South San Francisco 700 days to 0 Portsmouth, VA $112,000 to $25,000/ year Seymour, In $52,000 to $0 Woodbridge, NJ $800, to $150,000.00

18 Conversion to automation From this To this

19 Common concerns Ugly large cans difficult to maneuver, particularly elderly and disabled Actual practice has not borne this out in benchmarked communities, regardless best practice will be to offer smaller cans for the over 55 and disabled communities Not enough room for households refuse in single cart 96Gallon cans have proven to be more than adequate in all towns studied. Displacement of workers Current status is opportune time due to period of retirements anticipated without affecting negatively any workers

20 Enforcement of non compliance 1 st month learning curve and reminders using “oops” tags “oops” tag to residents whose carts are misplaced along with informative flyer After 1 st month garbage cans not in compliance or not placed in appropriate cans will not be picked up
