ROUTING OF SOLID WASTE COLLECTION VEHICLES. APPENDIX A: MANUAL FOR USE OF THE COMPUTER CODES

This report describes research on computer-based and manual techniques for the routing of solid waste collection vehicles. Algorithms are given for the routing of single vehicles under three conditions: (1) all streets are two way, (2) all streets are one way, and (3) some streets are two way and others are one way. In addition, a heuristic algorithm is provided for routing several vehicles in a larger area. Appendix A is a manual for use of the computer codes. Appendix B (separately bound) is a heuristic solution to the m-postmen's solution.
