The municipal solid waste (MSW) management is an important part of building the smart city. Waste transfer station is an important link between the upper and the lower in the MSW management. Politic, environment and economy are all need to be considered in the waste transfer station location problem. Based on that, By establishing an optimized MSW transfer station location system based on internet of things, the locations of MSW transfer station is studied. Firstly, the Ward’s clustering approach is used to obtain the waste transfer station number in the city. And then a multi-objective model is established and NSGA-II is used to solve the model to obtain the Pareto frontier solution set of waste transfer station location coordinates. According the Google map, the optimal location coordinates of waste transfer station are obtained. Finally, a case study is conducted to demonstrate the practicality and efficiency of the proposed model and solution algorithm.
