Municipal Solid Waste Collection Problems: A Literature Review
This paper presents a review of the available literature on solid waste management problems, with a particular focus on vehicle routing problems. The available papers are classified into different catego-ries with the purpose of providing the reader with a guide that facilitates his/her search for papers in his/her field of interest. For each category, a table is presented that gives a summary of how each paper scores from that perspective. Additional explanation is presented about the characteristics of each cate-gory using some key references. Finally, this paper discovers unexplored areas of research and identi-fies trends in the literature.
