The increasing production of solid waste rate in urban areas plays a critical role in sustainable development. To mitigate the adverse effects of waste and enhance waste management efficiency, this paper introduces a holistic approach that notably reduces the overall cost while mitigating social and environmental impacts. Central to the system's efficacy is the critical process of waste sorting, which enhances the output value of the waste management system. While previous studies have not extensively addressed simultaneous waste collection and sorting, this paper provides an innovative integrated framework. This approach Integrates waste collection with various bins, followed by their transfer to separation centers. At these centers, waste is categorized into organic and non-organic varieties, which are then dispatched to a recovery center at the second level. In the context of optimizing the routes at both levels, this paper presents a green, multi-objective location-allocation model. This model is designed to optimize the number and location of separation center facilities. Since the routing problem is influenced by the facility location model, it is addressed as a multi-depot green vehicle routing problem, integrating real-time information from IoT-equipped bins.

Abstract

The increasing production of solid waste rate in urban areas plays a critical role in sustainable development. To mitigate the adverse effects of waste and enhance waste management efficiency, this paper introduces a holistic approach that notably reduces the overall cost while mitigating social and environmental impacts. Central to the system's efficacy is the critical process of waste sorting, which enhances the output value of the waste management system. While previous studies have not extensively addressed simultaneous waste collection and sorting, this paper provides an innovative integrated framework. This approach Integrates waste collection with various bins, followed by their transfer to separation centers. At these centers, waste is categorized into organic and non-organic varieties, which are then dispatched to a recovery center at the second level. In the context of optimizing the routes at both levels, this paper presents a green, multi-objective location-allocation model. This model is designed to optimize the number and location of separation center facilities. Since the routing problem is influenced by the facility location model, it is addressed as a multi-depot green vehicle routing problem, integrating real-time information from IoT-equipped bins. This paper also proposes the vehicle routing problem with a split pickup, aiming to minimize cost, CO2 emissions, and visual pollution. The mathematical models introduced to formulate the problem are solved using the GAMS optimization software to apply an exact method, while Social Engineering Optimization and Keshtel algorithms are deployed to solve the routing problem. The proposed approach offers a comprehensive and sustainable solution to waste management, filling crucial gaps in current research and practice.
