Abstract

Facility location models presently available in solid waste management are reviewed. From these models, one is adapted and modified to optimally locate the modular incinerator plants and transfer stations in municipal solid waste systems. The criteria for optimization is developed in terms of minimum total costs of the system. The generation and composition of municipal solid waste at present, and projected estimates into the future, through the year 2000, are also presented. Recommendations are made for the use of modular incinerators and conservation of landfills and use of the optimization model for locating incinerator plants and transfer stations by the municipal solid waste managers.
