New technology trends are spreading in selective waste collection, which apply real-time based info-communication systems defining the saturation of the containers. Merely defining the routes to containers is not enough; saturation of the waste gathering vehicle should also be measured for optimization. In practice, the compression scale of homogenous recyclable waste types is different meaning that saturation optimization cannot be based on this value. This study aims to provide answers to the above-mentioned problem. In order to have an extended analysis the whole city traffic should be taken into account as waste collection traffic may be obstructed by traffic itself. The RPC (Route Planning Center) will apply optimal control for the entire traffic network, which is elaborated by a network analyst pre-calculating network state parameters. The extended approach is based on a determined complex road network modelling technique. Thus further research will be able to integrate the circumstances of the entire traffic network like the definition of traffic network dependent optimal trajectory in chapter 8.
