Recently, waste disposal has emerged as a big
issue around the world. A massive amount of garbage is
produced and discarded in environmentally hazardous
ways. To overcome this problem, the Internet of Things
based smart bin is an extremely inventive solution that
will aid in the preservation of the environment. This
paper advanced an automatic waste segregator, a lowprice, easy-to-use solution for a segregation system that
can be dispatched without delay to processing. This
automated waste segregator is designed to sort the waste
into metallic waste, wet waste, and miscellaneous waste.
For detecting the waste, a wet sensor, metal sensor, and
infrared sensor are used. An infrared sensor is used to
waste bin lid closure and open and detect the presence of
humans. Temporary closing of waste bin lid on the critical
level filling by using servomotor mechanism. The
proposed system is made up of an ultrasonic sensor for
measuring waste levels and an Arduino for controlling
system operations. It can also send an alert message to the
municipality via the Internet of Things when the waste
bin is full or nearly full, allowing the waste to be collected
as soon as possible.
