En este trabajo se plantea un problema relacionado con la recogida, transporte y tratamiento de residuos. Se consideran centros generadores de residuos y centros de tratamiento, y se contempla la instalación de nuevas plantas de tratamiento en ciertas localizaciones seleccionadas en un conjunto de lugares candidatos. Para escoger estas localizaciones, se atiende a criterios económicos, riesgo y equidad. A diferencia de otros trabajos sobre gestión de residuos especiales, no deseados o nocivos, en este caso se consideran algunos centros generadores que son también centros de tratamiento; esta situación puede observarse, por ejemplo, en la gestión de los residuos sanitarios especiales. Se formula un modelo de programación por metas y se muestra una aplicación. In this paper, a problem related with the collection, transport and treatment of waste is presented. Generator centres and treatment facilities are considered, and new treatment plants can be installed. The locations of treatment facilities are selected according to economics criteria, risk and equity. In this work, it is considered that some generator centres are treatment facilities too; an example is the management of special sanitary waste in hospitals. A goal programming model is formulated and an application is shown.
