Objectives: The management of Medical Waste in Morocco has always been the concern of the health department. Recently, the WHO classified the Medical Waste in Morocco as a time bomb, recommended involving of professionals interested in that management. Methods/Findings: Through this study we proposed a model of collectors’ management, on behalf of clinics in case of Casablanca region. This model, as part of a heterogeneous fleet vehicle routing problem, aims at multiobjective optimization between the pillars of sustainable development. The complexity of the model is managed using a Ruin and Recreate heuristic. Application: Finally, the tuning of weighting parameters is being experimented to show how it will be possible to find a compromise between conflicting objectives in the case of Medical Waste logistics.
