The waste segregation system will sort the waste into its different components. This segregated waste is then collected in a smart bin equipped with GSM technology to indicate via SMS the status of each bin. The bins are built on a microcontroller based platform Arduino ATmega 2560 which is interfaced with GSM module. The ultrasonic sensor is used for distance measurement. The threshold distance is the difference in height at which the sensor is placed and the level of garbage in the bins. Whenever the difference between the sensor and the waste falls below the threshold value the GSM module is activated to send an alert signal to the concerned personal through an SMS. As soon as an SMS alert is received the concerned authority can place orders to the workers for emptying the bins before they overflow.
