Locating Temporary Storage Sites for Managing Disaster Waste, Using Multiobjective Optimization

Generally, collected DW is disposed at land¥ll areas all around world. But uncontrolled disposal of the waste is environmentally and economically harmful.

demolition (C&D) wastes. So the C&D waste treatment methods can be a starting point when DW is considered. e most common way applied to manage the C&D waste is collecting all waste and transporting to dumpsites for ¥nal disposal without any treatment, just like the present applications of DWM. One other way is to transport collected waste to a recycling facility and separate reusable and recyclable parts from the debris either before or after transporting them. Another way, which is the most environmentally e®ective one, is to separate all materials at a temporary site (Figure 6.1), so that the land¥ll disposal of untreated hazardous wastes is minimized and all applicable materials can be recycled or reused (Söder and Müller, 2011).
