Paper Title:
A Multi-Objective Linear Programming Model for a Regional Two–Phase MSW Transfer System in a Medium Sized City – A Case Study in Zhongshan, China
  Abstract

Municipal solid waste management (MSWM) has consistently improved to keep up with the vast amount of solid waste in urban and rural areas. Research on optimization for an efficient management system has a place for the collection, transportation and transfer of solid waste. Waste transfer optimization attempts to minimize the inconvenience and costs, which must transfer between waste generation source and waste disposal sites (WDSs). In this paper, a Multi-objective Linear Programming Model for the Two-phase Waste Transfer System (MOLPMWTS) is assumed to be given, with which the two-phase waste transfer stations (WTSs) and motor carriers for waste transfer are take into account. And a two-phase waste transfer system in town of Guzhen, Zhongshan, China, is presented. The case showed a multi-objectives for numerical minimization of allocation of WTSs and transfer carriers.
