In order to obtain an accurate idea of
the method of garbage collection and dis
posal a* proposed by the Atlantic Trod
net Co,, should it obtain
therefor from the city of Wilmington, «
reporter of Every Keeping went to At
lantic City, N. >1., yesterday, and exam
ined the plant there, which is one of Hi e
latest installed by the company, having
been put in operation June 8th, 1904.
The Atlantic City plant is on North
Tennessee avenue, about a mile from At
lantic avenue, on the meadow s, and there
are no dwellings within allant
of a mile. It is on land owned by the
city, which is leased for the purpose.
There arc several buildings, the total
area of which cover* about 100x150 feet.
The company's plant adjoins one owned
and formerly operated by the city, which
has lieen abandoned. The city plant was
an incinerating project. It cost about
$»0.000 eight
a bout live
ira ago and was uoud for
It has )hm'ii idle aince
October, 1003, when a portion of it was
wrecked by a storm. After that storm
contract was entered into with the
(ample now disposing of the garbage, fur
collection ami disposal. A 10-year con
tract was made, Iml it was unbilled by
the court, on the ground that a contract
could not lie made in New Jersey, by a
municipality, for a longer period than
live years. Subsequently a five-year eon
tract was mode and this was followed by
litigation based on the fact that the ap
propriation for that year, 1004, was
about $450 short of the contract price,
and in order to dispose of the matter, it
was decided to give only yearly con
tracts, and the company is now operating
on this plan, its present contract, which
was entered into on September 1st, 1005,
piling August 31st, 1000.
When the Atlantic Product Co. first
took hold of the work, in October, 1903,
it had no plant there and the city decided
not to have its damaged plant repaired,
as the cost would exceed $20,000, and it
would be used only temporarily, conse
quently the company obligated itself to
dispose of the garbage in some satisfac
tory manner until Us plant should he
ready to operate, and in tho interim it
collec ted the giirlcago und had it taken
in boats to places where it could be dis
posed of to farmers.
The old city plant was a large affair.
It consisted of a series of furnace like re
tort«, in which the garbage, after being
drained on the rood outside the plant,
was burned, but, so fur us could be as
certained yesterday, there was no reve
nue-producing by-product of any conse
quence. The consuming fuel was gas,
which was made from coal on the prem
ises, being conveyed from the gus pro
ducer to the retorts in largo conveyors
on the roof of the building. The build
ing is a one-story affair, with a firebrick
roof, which is reached by a wooden in
cline. Up tais the carts were drawn and
the garbage was dumped into tho retorts,
after it had been drained. This method
appears not to have been satisfactory, it
is said to have produced obnoxious odors,
and although the [dam is understood to
have hud a capacity of 150 tons a day, it
is said that the gurbag
nmluted. Consequently, when the dis
astrous storm earn, along, in October,
1003. it is understood that there
strung sentiment, official mid unotlieial,
in favor of a change. Incidentally, the
old [liant had been on Michigan avenue,
nearer the built-up part of the city, and
when the one now abandoned was built
it was decided to place it a good distance
from the city proper, hence its location
on the meadows.
Tho plant of the Atlantic Product Co.,
o sometime.** ncou*
win» a
the one now in use, was begun, it is said,
soon after the 10-year
awarded, and, presumably,
lief that the company would do the work
there for at least 10 years. It comprises
a reduction house, boiler house, and re
ceiving house. The garbage goes to the
receiving house in the form Tu which it
is collected. There «re practically no de
lays in unloading the carts, which
run up an incline about 20 feet from the
floor of the reeojvtng house. The gar
Iwge is run down a tug shout ami is piled
on the floor of the receiving house,
through the centre of which runs « large
conveyor, which is a series of iron buck
et« on a chain belt. The garbage is fed
into the conveyor by men with rakes,
who lake out tin cans and rags which are
encountered. The remainder i
up u long steel trough to a height of
about 4« feet, and by a system of piping
it is shot into the tops of the retorts,
each feeding pipe having a valve,
»° make it possible to teed only empty
retorts. As soon as u retort is filled it

fertilizer idea nut into effect—the
only bi-nrodnet ot the garbage, an a re

there in u lull in receiving garlaigc, suf

receiving house* the latter is flushed with
hot water from the boilers, this flushing
being don«.* from 10 to 20 times n day,
anti a similar flushing process bikes place
in tho retort homo* each afternoon, be
tween 1 and 5 o'clock, when the work
for the day is finished in that depart
ment. As a result of lhis system, tho
place is kept free of refuse and any sort
of accumulation.
The reporter could detect an «>dor in
the retort house, which, however, was
not very pronounced, hut outside there
was absolutely no odor. One of tin*
Inches of the plant «aid there had been
times when there was u slight odor of
coffee, the result of burning the solid ref
use in tho boilers, but this could aoldom
l»e detected* and if there should be a
trace of coffee at any time It ia usually
consumed enllrclv before it gets out of
the stack, widen produces a splendid
draught. It is 100 feet high aV>ve the
mason work and six feet in diameter.
The repot ter asked several people in At
lantic £'it£ a 1)0ut this matter and nil
said they had daieelod no odor at all
since tit is company has l*een doing the
work, but sevenvl admitted that such
was nut tho ease under the old system.
Everybody spoken to appeared to be
pleased with the cluing«*,
Tho plant cost about $100,000. It in
cludes the e<piipment mentioned abovt*
and also 40 carts an«l 50 horses. In sum
mer .'10 carts are in regular use, but at
the present time half that number do the
work. The company always holds some
carls in rcsenc. It is required* under its
contract, to keep the carts watertight.
They have to be covered at all times. If
a cart shown any leaks it must bo put
out of commission* umler penalty of a
flue, and a good one sulsitituted. The
specification* an* characterized by thor
oughness. The contract price tor the
current year is $4'l,.*100, ami the company
is required to do everything. It must
make daily collection« in April (because
of the Kanter crowds in that month)
•lune, July, August and September, and
must collect three times a week during
the other months. It must provide each
householder, ludclkerpcr, &c., with a
curd, showing the days ami hours of col
lection. In the section of the city be
tween Pacific avenue and the Atlantic
Udtall, whose mmrly of the large hotels
arc located, tiie collections have to be
made before 10 o'clock in the morning.
Originally it was proposed to make these
collections at night, but this idea was
abandoned because of annoyance to hotel
guests. A heavy penalty is provided for
non collection, a fine of $."> being deduct
ed from the contract bills for each house
overlooked. For each overloaded or leaky
cart a tine of $2 is imposed. If an em
ploye becomes negligent, discourteous or
abusive, the Board of Health or City
ConncH can order him discharge«!, and if
the-company, does not comply it is liable
to a line of $2 for each violation of such
notiflertlion. If « dead animal is not re
ed promptly the Company is liable to
a line of $5. J)e«d animals are included
in the category of garbage, and, like the
garbage, they go into the retorts and are
burned. The reporter saw a dog in the
gnrimge disposed of yesterday afternoon.
puny is required to have spe
cial wagons to take the garbage from
houses where contagions diseases exist,
and. t«> take special care of them. Non
compliance with this provision renders
the company liable to a fine of $10 for
euch violation.
h i s |u < iii* .1 in the contract that the
any i
have a capacity for disposing of 400 tons
of garbage daily.
The specification* make it imperative
that all garbage must l>e in the rel«»rts

rule to dispose of the garbage as soon as
it is collected; that is, on the same day.
""bile «orne which is collected late in tba
day may remain in the retorts over
night, they arc hermetically sealed, and
is allowed to remain exposed over
night. As a matter of fact, it is under
stood, the hulk of file collecting is done
in the morning and most of the ladling
is done in the day of collection.
The bidding is competitive, ns the law
requires, but the company which now
lias the contract is understood to have
been the loverl bidder.
1 tiller the spécifient ions, each bidder
must accompany his proposal with a cer
tified check for $10,0U0, and the
fnl bidder mutt give a bond to the value
of half the contract price.
From 25 to 30 men are required to op
erate the plant in summer and 12 to 15
in winter, while the collecting is done by
30 men in summer and 15 in winter.
While no definite statement could be ob
tained as to the cost of operating the
plant, a little figuring may arrive at
something pretty close. The pay-roll

another young man, went into the stoic
and asked to see some diamond rings,
he wished to select one for u wedding ring.
A tray of diamond rings was shown him
: ■
and after examining them awhile he picked
out a fine ring and asked tlmt it be laid
aside for about half an hour until he could
go out and get the money to pay for it.
Ho failed to return to buy the diamond
and then it occurred to the clerks that
some orooked work might have been done,
the tray was examined and it was found
that a diamond ring worth $65 had been
removed and one with an imitation bril
liant had been substituted. The bogus
gem was ot the kind that could he bought
for 25 cents and was in a gold-plated ring.
