Waste Collection Optimization for the Amager Resource Center Public

Downloadable Content

open in viewer

The Amager Resource Center is a public nonprofit waste management company that performs incineration of household waste in their waste-to-energy plant, the Amager Bakke. In a team of four, we designed a series of recommendations centered around E-truck fleet optimization as the company will begin collecting household waste, from the entire Municipality of Copenhagen, effective in 2022. These recommendations included a Capacity Calculator that acted as an algorithm to output the number of trucks needed for any given input of waste. This algorithm determined the E-truck quota for any area to then create waste truck routes and assign collection days based on given frequencies for the districts of Amager East/Vesterbro. Standard work instructions were created to aid these processes.
