As the amount of solid waste is increasing, the need for innovative ideas to help improve solid waste management\nis growing by the time. To provide a cost effective solution to this problem, a new framework has been proposed that enables\nthe remote monitoring of the parameters of the bin with the help of X-bee and GSM technology. The proposed system keep a\ncheck on the filling of the bin, temperature, humidity, volume of CO2 inside the bin and accordingly transmits the\ninformation to the base station which further sends the information to the control station where it is used for route\noptimization problems to reduce the operation costs and greenhouse gas emissions. An additional feature is a text message\nthat is sent to the authorities with the location of the bin whenever the bin filled above 90%, keeping 10% as a safe limit\nbefore the garbage starts to overflow. The design of the bin is such that it keeps the people using the bin motivated towards\nprotecting our environment.
