How to save the cost of collection and transportation is one of the biggest problems in the urban garbage logistics system. In this paper, a model has been set up to minimize the system operation cost, and a genetic algorithm was developed to work this model out. Experimental studies show that the GA generates approximate optimal solutions very quickly and good-quality solutions can be obtained on an acceptable computational cost.
