I have a problem with the location of new facilities. In the specific I should locate rubbish bins in the city, without considering the current location (it is not relevant because all current and new bins have to be relocate), in 2 scenarios:

- considering only the coverage of the area.

- considering the coverage of the area and the capacity of the bins.


I have tried to use the funcion location/allocation, without any results because it is no possible to have proposed locations since I am looking for the best location of the bins.


I am doing this because after the pourpose is to study the optimal route of the camion for the two models, and state which one is better.


Can you give me some advices and ideas on how to solve this problem?
