Abstract


In world, landscapes of rapidly growing urban areas generate large volume of solid waste. In the next decade, it is expected that
more than 50% of solid waste will be increased. Effective and more integrated waste monitoring and management solutions using innovative
technologies are required besides the traditional use of labour, dustbins, garbage boxes, vehicles, etc. This paper presents a solution for
effective waste monitoring and management using IoT based smart waste bin. We have developed smart waste bin using Arduino hardware.
The waste bin continuously monitors the level of waste in it through sensors. Developed smart waste bins and system have initially installed
in the campus-sized area. The system is tested on various performance criteria. The solution gave promising results in effective waste
monitoring and management.
