Solid Waste Management Using IoT

Authors(5) :-Megha Ramesh, N Harshita Subbaiah, Punyashree B S, Rachana Gowda H C, Sowjanya M N

Recent days in India, government and companies are looking for solutions to increase the collection level of various waste types by using new technologies and devices such as smart sensors, internet of things (IoT), cloud platforms etc,. Some time bin will be overflowing by the garbage which attracts dogs and cattleā€™s, these animals will make the garbage to spill on the road. Currently there is no bin monitored remotely so complete automation is needed. This paper mainly briefs about checking the level sensors to provide the status of the bin filled level and also provides the information like temperature, humidity, with latitude and longitude of the bin position using u-blox GPS to send the information to control centre which is used an additional feature for distributing the messages for the multiple users published by authorized person for complete automation with information exchange will be given using MQTT protocol. Therefore, waste management system aims to provide the efficient way to keep the environment clean and green.
