Abstract:   (3817 Views)
Collection of waste is an important logistic activity within any city. In this study, a mathematical model is proposed in order to reduce the cost of waste collection. First a mixed-integer nonlinear programming model is provided including a waste collection routing problem, so that, there is a balance between the distance between trashcans, and the similarity of the trashcans in terms of the types of waste which is in the trashcans, in order to select the optimal route for each garbage transport vehicles. For this purpose, a similarity pattern is designed. Then, the model is solved by using LINGO 0.9 software and the output results of solved model were analyze.
