Pneumatic refuse conveying system
The pneumatic refuse conveying system is a type of waste disposal system that uses air to move refuse through pipes to collection points.
A pneumatic refuse collection system on Roosevelt Island, New York City, is said to be the largest in the United States and the only system in the U.S. serving a residential complex in this case nearly 10,000 people.
