Abstract

The problem of designing minimum-cost recycling networks with required throughput is a subset of the broader class of facility location problems in which the recycler wishes to determine the optimal number and location of receiving centers as well as the correct financial incentive to be offered in order to stimulate collection of used or unrecoverable products to a degree required for regulatory reasons or otherwise. This paper presents a conceptual framework, an analytical model, and a three-stage algorithmic solution for this problem. An illustrative case study in the recycling of unrecoverable tires in southern states of Brazil is presented.
