Waste management is an important aspect to be addressed in Smart Cities and buildings. An effective waste management system can reduce the reliance on workforce and also reduce the labor cost required for systematic waste collection. The advancement in IoT technology enables waste management to be carried out effectively and promptly when the garbage is fully occupied. This work aims to develop a smart waste management system based on the Internet of Things (IoT), implemented with sensors that can track the level of waste in the garbage bin. The developed idea here is novel, deploying a simple IoT enabled ultrasonic sensor setup to realize waste level monitoring and remotely making the data available to users so that waste collection can be carried out effectively and timely upon full occupancy.
