Abstract

Waste management in smart cities is one of the major challenges that arise every day. It is becoming increasingly difficult to lead a healthy and sustainable lifestyle in urban areas. Due to the lack of an appropriate approach to waste disposal, problems such as waste spillage occur, which seriously damage the environment. Proper waste disposal is becoming increasingly difficult due to population growth,urbanizationandindustrialization.In order to ensure the ecological sanitation and sustainable life of the city, we implemented an integrated IoT-based system including a coverage system, a display system, and a communication system. The proposed waste management is significantly more efficient than any other conventional waste because it reduces labor, avoids waste leakage, saves time, is more economical, and eventually fully automated.In this paper, a system is introduced for efficient waste management inlargecitieswithouttheneed to manuallymonitor24/7. Detects the presence of wet or dry waste, which can be detected with an IR sensor. For wet waste, a moisture sensor can be used. All these sensors are connected to the Arduino Uno board. When only IR is detected during this process, the motor rotates towards the dry waste bin. Ultrasonic sensors are used to measure the distance between the tanks. When the trash can is full, a notification message is sent to that person.
