WASTE CODES

OPTIMAL WASTE BIN ALLOCATION AND ROUTE OPTIMIZATION OF WASTE-COLLECTION VEHICLES

We develop optimization studies for waste disposal systems in demand of Municipalities, as well as for industrial plants.Typically, the waste bins’ placement, capacity, number and installation point are random and irregular, without being the result of a technical study. We are specialized in  conducting optimization studies of waste temporary disposal system for municipalities or even for industrial facilities.

After the investigation of quantitative and qualitative characteristics of our client’ s generated waste, we set future objectives defined by legislation and note failure of the management policy to date.

The study is carried out in two phases.The First Phase includes the recording and detailed analysis of the Solid Waste Production data for the studying area. In brief, we investigate:

  1. the administrative organization, its population, its population-density and its waste collection system within the regions’ customer-defined spatial limits
  2. The quantitative and qualitative characteristics of the generated solid waste
  3. the weakness of the implied waste collection and transport system
  4. future objectives defined by law

In B Phase, the step-by-step description is the required way of working from the initial phase of on-site bin(blue and green)  observation to the final spet: the optimal waste allocation.Briefly:Observation on-site is being performed by counting the bins and by recording all the appropriate characteristics.We develop the waste truck route optimization through GIS, Google Earth, Google Map

An alternative scenario is being proposed for the spatial planning of waste-containers via the following optimization criteria:

  • The optimal distance between similar bins  (blue-green and green-green)
  • Keeping the right proportion of green: blue bucket per installation point
  • Keeping the right proportion of residents: blue bucket and residents: green bucket
  • The minimum walking distance of the pedestrian to the bucket
  • The minimum point concentration of bins

An alternative plan for the collection and transport of SW(Solid Waste) is proposed according to the following optimization criteria:

  • Collection costs per tonne of MSW
  • Minimizing traveler’s distance
  • The altitude factor
  • Minimization of dead collection time
