Generate Service Area based on Addresses

Hello all,

I'm wondering if this is even possible.  I currently have 4 service areas for trash pickup based on the day of the week.  These are based on Addresses and were assigned by hand originally.  Now, one day is significantly larger than the others so I'm trying to figure out the best way to assign new service areas.

Is there a way to generate services areas based on address points so that the addresses are evenly distrubuted, or at least close?

If not by using service area, is there another way that would be more suited to this goal?
