Smart Waste Management System

The Project aims to develop a prototype of smart waste management system for monitoring of municipality-based trash bins along with an automatic door opening facility at each site. This will ensure a cleaner environment since an automatic lid opening leads to citizens throwing all the garbage in the bin and not around the bin. To execute the entire setup such as this we need certain sensors that detect any human motion around the bin and those, which can detect the level of trash. Certain communication modules such as GSM are interfaced with the main controller chip. The scope of this system is to use GSM via a mobile phone by sending and receiving SMS via GSM network. A similar system is established at the municipality office, except the automatic door opening facility. This system at the municipality’s end, mainly receives messages sent from the trash’s site.
