Abstract The development and successful application of a heuristic procedure for routing solid waste collection vehicles is described. Topics include (1) the value of routing, (2) reasons for rerouting, (3) advantages of the heuristic approach, (4) heuristic rules, data requirements, and routing procedures, (5) factors to consider when implementing this approach. An actual example and exercises are included to show the relative ease of application and to familiarize the reader with the heuristic approach to the routing of solid waste collection vehicles.
