The main centers of human and economic activity are the cities. They have the potential to create development opportunities to their citizens. They also create many problems when they grow in population and create complexities which are difficult to tackle. Urban areas need management for their development. It needs support for economic competitiveness, social cohesiveness, environment sustainability for increased quality of life for their citizens. “Smart City” concept appeared as a means to achieve more efficient and sustainable cities with the development of new technological advancement such as ICTs concept. Since its beginning, the Smart City idea has developed its execution of particular project and its implementation has to tackle many challenges. So it is very necessary to get a broad view of the available possibilities and relate them to the specific city challenges. Waste collection is just one of the many opportunities in waste management that can be explored in smart cities. The aim of this paper is to provide technology/system to collect waste. This paper suggests an automated system for container monitoring system and waste collection using RFID, Cloud and sensor technologies. The system recommends the use of RFID tags to set up on containers. RFID readers will also set up on trucks along with Cloud and sensor technologies for wireless transmission. It will provide help in optimizing the routes for garbage disposal vehicles used for waste collection and removal. The automating operations through sensors on garbage bins will signal that collection is needed when the bins are full.
