Hinkley Center, 2002The Florida Center for Solid and Hazardous Waste Management conducted a visual survey in Alachua County to determine if waste was being spilled, what waste was being spilled, and why the spillage occurred. Researchers also wanted to learn where and when the spillage occurred and what steps might be taken to eliminate future spills. This study focused on front-loading trucks servicing commercial dumpsters. Three solid waste
haulers utilizing front loaders operate in Alachua County: Boone/Waste Management, Waste Pro, and SWS. Several days were spent following waste haulers to observe their operations and gather information before designing the data sheets used in the study.
