Abstract: 
In undesirable facility location problem contrary to desirable location, facilities are located far from service receiver facilities as much as possible. The problem of locating such facilities is discussed in this study. This research is focused on the ‘ not in my backyard’ (NIMBY) phrase which refers to the social phenomena in which residents are opposed to locate undesirable facilities around their houses. Examples of such facilities include electric transmission lines and recycling centers. Due to the opposition typically encountered in constructing an undesirable facility, the facility planner should understand the nature of the NIMBY phenomena and consider it as a key factor in determining facility location. Because of the adverse effects of these facilities, coupled with the uncertainty in the real world, it is estimated taking into account the potential uncertainty. This problem has been considered in the discrete space. The mathematical model is presented and methods to deal with uncertainty and stochastic programing problems modeling and methods used in the study are presented. According to the NP-hard problem, Simulated Annealing suggested for solving problems in large-scale. Numerical experiments to evaluate and validate the mathematical modeling and proposed algorithm are considered and operation of the proposed algorithm to solve various problems with genetic algorithms available in the literature about the problem is compared.
