Solid Waste Collection Routes Optimization via GIS Techniques in Ipoh City, Malaysia

Waste collection becomes more complex in developing countries in terms of logistic, fuel and labor cost and air pollutants emission. In this study, solid waste collection routes optimization using Geographical Information System (GIS-ArcView) was investigated. Five routes were selected in different area of Ipoh city for pilot study and the present routes were optimized to reduce the length of the routes and consequently the time taken to complete the collection. Results indicate up to 22% length minimization in the routes. The collection duration was also reduced from 6934s to 4602s.
