Waste management is simple yet effective ways of reducing the amount of waste dumped into our landfills. But there are people who are unaware or even choose to ignore the fact that waste segregation and recycling are environment friendly solutions to the problem of wastes management and disposal. In the Philippines, there are recycling centers but the process is tedious and done manually. There are guidelines implemented by the government with regards to recycling but these efforts have yet to touch the mindset of the people. Escalating amounts of recyclables that are not maximized and indifference in proper waste segregation has led to the group in developing a solution to this. This project IOT Garbage Management system is a very innovative system which will help to keep the cities clean. This system monitors the garbage bins and informs about the level of garbage collected in the garbage bins via a web page. For this the system uses ultrasonic sensors placed over the bins to detect the garbage level and compare it with the garbage bins depth. The system makes use of Arduino family microcontroller to control every process and Wi-Fi modem for sending data to server. Dustbins are provided with low cost embedded device which helps in tracking the level of the garbage bins and an unique ID will be provided for every dustbin so that it is easy to identify which garbage bin is full. When the level reaches the threshold limit, the device will transmit the level along with the unique ID provided. These details can be accessed by the concern authorities from their place with the help of Internet and an immediate action can be made to clean the dustbins.
