Municipal solid waste (MSW) management is known as one of the most crucial activities in municipalities that requires large amounts of fixed/variable and investment costs. The operational processes of collection, transportation and disposal include the major part of these costs. On the other hand, greenhouse gas (GHG) emission as environmental aspect and citizenship satisfaction as social aspect are also of particular importance, which are inevitable requirements for MSW management. This study tries to develop a novel mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) model to formulate the sustainable periodic capacitated arc routing problem (PCARP) for MSW management. The objectives are to simultaneously minimize the total cost, total environmental emission, maximize citizenship satisfaction and minimize the workload deviation. To treat the problem efficiently, a hybrid multi-objective optimization algorithm, namely, MOSA-MOIWOA is designed based on multi-objective simulated annealing algorithm (MOSA) and multi-objective invasive weed optimization algorithm (MOIWOA). To increase the algorithm performance, the Taguchi design technique is employed to set the parameters optimally. The validation of the proposed methodology is evaluated using several problem instances in the literature. Finally, the obtained results reveal the high efficiency of the suggested model and algorithm to solve the problem.

Proper management of municipal solid waste (MSW) has been a crucial aspect of every society due to its social, environmental, and economic impacts. Operations research techniques have frequently focused on cost minimization objectives in locational planning of municipal solid waste management (MSWM) systems. However, transportation constitutes an integral part of this system producing a considerable amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Therefore, sustainable management of this system with GHG emissions...

Municipal solid waste (MSW) is an unavoidable by-product of human activities. The generation of MSW tends to increase with the growing population and the economic development of the society. Landfilling is one of the most common disposal methods for MSW in the world. However, there are numerous disadvantages of landfills including the potential to create air, soil and water pollution. Also, many valuable resources are wasted when waste is landfilled. Furthermore, many countries have established rules to lim...
Development of a knowledge-based tool for waste management of prefabricated steel structure projects
Mirshekarlou, Babak Rahmani; BUDAYAN, Cenk; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (2021-11-01)
Although the construction industry is critical for sustainability goals due to the high amount of waste it generates, its waste management performance is still not at the desired level. One of the main reasons for this can be attributed to the lack of enough knowledge of construction companies on the sources/reasons of waste and amount of waste. The major aim of this study was to develop a knowledge-based tool for capturing, storing, and disseminating waste-related knowledge for prefabricated steel construc...
LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT IN NORTH CYPRUS
Erhun, Melis; Akıntuğ, Bertuğ; Ünlü, Kahraman; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2022-2)
Integrated solid waste management (ISWM) is used in order to sustain social and environmental quality within a city by using various treatment methods in parallel. On the other hand, in developing countries, solid waste management is one of the biggest challenges in the large cities. The increase in the population, thus the waste generation arises budget deficits for municipalities due to high management costs. The current waste disposal and management method applied in North Cyprus causes pollution to the ...
