Abstract: As the population is growing, the quantity of garbage is also multiplying proportionately. This big heap of accumulated garbage is making harm to the environment, spoils the location beauty and also creates health hazards in the area. The free open source simulation environment called Contiki OS helps in analyzing the performance parameters of Wireless Sensor Networks. The Cooja simulator in Contiki OS simulates the network scenario, provides the means, and tools to observe network behavior in different environments on different platforms. The results obtained by the simulator are found to be very near to actual deployment behavior. This paper explains the work done on analysis of RPL protocol in the applications of IoT. The sensor node reside inside the dust bin, it helps to obtain the status of the dustbin and routes information to reach those dustbins. To implement the shortest path between the dustbins, Travelling Salesman Problem (TSP) is used, which helps the truck driver to reach the dustbin in minimumtime.
