The City of Fridley has interest in the transportation of solid waste and requested a study to identify solid waste transportation system options that are presently used in surrounding communities. This paper analyses three transportation systems, identifies options for the City of
Fridley, and outlines the process that must be followed in order to change Fridley’s current system. To gather information on solid waste transportation systems, thirteen communities were surveyed, including first and second-ring cities. Further, this study will highlight impacts of the current transportation system and reasons for why Fridley may look to change their
transportation system including street decay, noise and air pollution, and safety concerns. Lastly, a cost-benefit analysis of each transportation system was developed and used as the basis for recommendations to the City of Fridley.
