Abstract: Collection of municipal wastes is an important logistic activity within any city. After the collection operations a systematic cleaning of the waste containers is important for the public health because the containers become dirty. In this paper, we study the containers cleaning tours as a variant of vehicle routing problem with time window (VRPTW) which is concerned with finding cost optimal routes for vehicle. As solving approach, the genetic algorithm is adopted and then applied on a set of instances from the literature. The experiment results prove the efficiency of the proposed approach.
