Abstract: Due to rise in population, the waste disposed by human has become enormous. This paper deals with a real time practical application of designing and building a prototype for an automatic opening and closing of dustbin on the detection of the human intervention who wish to throw out their trash. In this system the level of garbage in the bin can be known by the use of sensors. Each dustbin has a unique ID. If the garbage in the bin reaches the threshold level, the garbage collectors are given information based on which they can collect the garbage. In case the dustbins reach threshold level, user will not be able to access the bin. In order to avoid the decaying smell around the bin the harmless chemical sprinklers are used. Further, the garbage is segregated into bio degradable and non-biodegradable wet and dry waste using a conveyor belt. Internally electric oven burns the dry waste and the ashes are used for certain applications such as in cleaning the pond and in preventing the growth of algae in the pond water. The wet wastes are made to decompose and it acts as a fertilizer to the fields. The plastic wastes collected are used in building plastic tar roads.
