Rapid increase in Urbanisation and Globalisation has led to an upsurge in the levels of solid waste production. The 21st century has notarised increased levels of garbage which not only degrades the environment but has severe implications at the societal level like deterioration of health of both human and animals in and around. Hence, it is the need of the hour to take time and build an efficient, effective and a well-organised mechanism to detect, monitor and manage the waste production. The traditional approach to waste management as we witness is time-consuming, cumbersome and heavily dependent on human effort which is not in sync with the updating technology. Smart Cities equipped with Smart Garbage Monitoring Systems can be one of the potential solutions to overcome these issues. A Smart City is assimilation of several integrated Internet of Things (IoT) Subsystems, of which Smart Garbage Monitoring System is one. One of the main applications is to eliminate the problems posed by the solid waste by designing a smart garbage monitoring system. The aim of this project is to design a cost-effective system which optimises waste collection and reduces fuel consumption thereby mitigating the cost requirement considerably. The system monitors the bin levels and informs the same via a web-page. This in turn conveys the information to the garbage collectors. Results thus produced verify accurate real time monitoring of garbage levels
