India still has a long way to go in terms of cleanliness and sanitation, even though Swachh Bharat Abhiyan Campaign was initiated 5 years ago. There are still a lot of overflowing dustbins seen in the streets of our country and a lot more citizens with a "I don't care" mindset.
Cleanliness is an essential part of being human, and everyone has to maintain his or her own country like their home, instead of throwing waste on top of an already overflowing dustbin. The general public should be provided with some sort of assistance as to which dustbins to use and which ones not to. The Municipal Corporation should also be notified about the location of dustbins that are overflowing or about the dustbins that are emitting hazardous gases. Also, many health issues arise due to improper management of waste and such a menace has to be curbed to make India a truly Swachhtha nation.
Thus, with the help of IOT and app development, this problem should be dealt with immediately.
Case 1: General public, especially the homemakers who would like to dispose off their waste in a hassle free manner, that does not pollute the environment as well as harm themselves in any way.
Case 2: The Municipal Corporation of each city that can save a lot of man power and money if it knows which dustbins are exactly full and need some cleaning, instead of going around the whole city.
Garbage Monitoring is a huge problem in maximum cities all over the world. Improper
management of waste is a major factor for environmental pollution. This results in several health
issues. Our idea caters to the needs of the society on a daily basis and also integrates technology
and hygiene. The first sphere of our idea takes into consideration, the hygiene of the people.
Avoiding physical contact with the dustbin is of utmost importance as it ensures cleanliness and
social hygiene. A system with automated lids will be deployed in all the dustbins to tackle this
problem. Next, to ensure periodic removal of garbage from waste bins, an automated message
delivery system has been built. With the help of sensors installed in the bins, continuous
monitoring of waste levels takes place. Upon reaching a threshold, a message containing the
location of the bin will be sent to the corresponding municipal worker. There are also sensors
placed inside the dustbin that continuously monitor the presence of hazardous gases in the
dustbin. If detected, the same will be intimated to the worker. We have also developed an app that
keeps the public updated about the status of the dustbins in their locality. This will help them in
identifying empty dustbins near them and helps them in disposing their waste.
