Abstract: The waste management process includes steps from waste collection to its final disposal. Waste management is required to avoid adverse effects of the waste on human beings. When dry and wet waste mixed, it breakdowns into landfills and creates some dangerous greenhouse gases. Thus, the segregation of waste is an important process under waste management. Segregating waste helps to turn away it from landfill ensuring it’s recycled properly. Mixed dry waste like glass and paper can be turned into new different products. This prevents the energy and resources needed to create different products from raw material. If waste not segregated and disposed of properly it results in huge damage to the environment. This work proposes a smart waste bin for household applications. Arduino UNO, Arduino Nano, servo motors, and batteries are used for implementation. The benefits of this work are 1. The waste segregation results in simplified waste management and thus protect the environment. 2. The economic value of waste is best realized when it is separated and 3. It helps in reducing the health problems caused to the waste separating workers by decreasing the chances of getting infected. In India, there is limited work carried in the field of segregation of dry and wet wastes in a single bin at a household level. We propose a smart waste bin that is low-cost, easy to use for a segregation system at households. The collected waste can directly be sent for processing. Smart Waste Bin employs different sensors to differentiate wet and dry waste. Experimental results show that the segregation of waste into wet and dry waste has been implemented successfully.
