dc.description.abstractUp to 2002, Hellenic Solid Waste Management (SWM) policy specified that each of the country's 54 prefectural governments plan its own SWM system. After 2002, this authority was shifted to the country's 13 regions entirely. In this paper, we compare and contrast regional and prefectural SWM planning in Central Macedonia. To design the prefectural plan, we assume that each prefecture must be self-sufficient, and we locate waste facilities in each prefecture. In contrast, in the regional plan, we assume cooperation between prefectures and locate waste facilities to serve the entire region. We present a new multicriteria mixed-integer linear programming model to solve the location-allocation problem for municipal SWM at the regional level. We apply the lexicographic minimax approach to obtain a "fair" nondominated solution, a solution with all normalized objectives as equal to one another as possible. A solution to the model consists of locations and technologies for transfer stations, material recovery facilities, incinerators and sanitary landfills, as well as the waste flow between these locations.en_US
