A Continuous Approximation Model for Vehicle Routing in Solid Waste Management Systems

  title={A Continuous Approximation Model for Vehicle Routing in Solid Waste Management Systems},
  author={Octavio A. Carranza Torres},
The problem of designing routes for solid waste collection systems is analyzed in the \house to house" variant. Marginal costs area,-according to route distances from depotare determined to propose optimal sizes of zones. A continuous approximation approach is used to propose simple formulas to design routes in square grid metrics with alternative senses. A methodology is proposed with partial results applied to a real case, \Students-City", whose name is maintained anonymous. The problem of… CONTINUE READING
