Reverse logistics and space allocation for recovery management in new urban settlements
This paper presents the authors’ vision about the planning foundation for the new residential areas from the large cities outskirts, in a sustainable development framework. One considers the great generation potential of the high and very high income population in case of the used products with remained reuse value, or new and undesired products, available in the residential places. We propose a space allocation model with a hexagonal hierarchical structure for the centralized return centers in a reverse logistics. The space allocation model for the recovery centers implementation takes into consideration: the recovery habits, environmental care and sustainable development education, “moral” compensations, centralized recovery centers facilities, walking willingness of the average inhabitant of the considered area, decision makings involvement at the local Public Authority level, and local community. One reveals the importance of the data collecting stage for the potential and availability of the exhausted products (having reuse value) in a specific area with high and very high income population
