Municipal waste at household level: Demand estimation and service design
Grant holder: Prof JW Joubert
Institution: University of Pretoria
Duration: 1 January 2020 to 31 March 2022
Project outline: The aim of this research project is to design cost-efficient residential waste collection services for municipalities by assessing the distribution of waste generated in a municipality, using the household and individual attributes of the synthetic population. It further aims to assess how sensitive the estimated waste generation is in terms of changes in the demographics, and taking the uncertainty of waste generation into account, what efficient, yet sustainable logistics services looks like for a municipality.
