N.H. City to Pilot Automated Solid Waste Trucks

September 19, 2016

The Department of Public Works for the City of Manchester (N.H.) will test out the use of automated solid waste collection. Manchester's Board of Mayor and Alderman recently approved a pilot program to test one automated truck. The program is set to begin in spring 2017, reports Waste 360.

Manchester's Environmental Programs Manager Mark Gomez told New Hampshire Public Radio that the city pays $300,000 annually in Workers' Compensation claims for trash collectors and loses 4,500 hours per year. These automated trucks are expected to increase worker safety.
