Abstract

Bin location in urban areas is a significant research problem. Prior research has considered the average distance that citizens reach bins and it turns out that a citizen may walk a very long distance to dispose the waste. In this paper, we intend to optimize the locating of bins in urban areas. By minimizing the maximum distance for citizens to bins, we find out the optimal location of a bin on a road. Then, a bi-objective model is developed to optimize the locations of bins in a road network, in which one objective is to minimize the maximum distance for citizens to bins, while the other minimizes the installation costs of bins. The solution method and a case analysis based on a real road network in Xi’an are given. The results verify the effectiveness of the model and method.
