I have very limited knowledge of ArcMap.  We're trying to find the best location for a recycling drop-off.  We would like to base this off of the following: 

  1. Number of sanitary sewer flows, weighted by severity
  2. Distance from existing drop-offs
  3. Population density

Locations of overflows have been geocoded and mapped.  We have data on severity of the overflows and population density.  Current drop-offs have also been geocoded and mapped.


We don't know where to go from here ... what kind of analysis to perform?


We are hoping to find at least 1 - 3 recycling station suggestions.


Thanks!!  Frustrated, confused student!
