As the population rate is growing very fast nowadays, with this not only the waste being produced is increasing beyond levels but also the problem to manage this waste is rising. Throwing waste into bin is a good thing but it is not where the problem of waste management ends, but it is where it actually begins. Till now there is no such remedy to manage this amount of waste with safety and better efficiency but by introducing the concept of automation in waste segregation process numerous advantages can be gained. Using PLC (Programmable logic controller) for this purpose will add more plus points in it like less human intervention, elimination of hardwiring, time consumption. In this discussion, the author is intended to put forwarded an arrangement of a system which is capable enough in itself to monitor and control the level of an overhead as well as underground water tank. This home automation system has been designed with the use of complete tools i.e. hardware and software modules provided by Mitsubishi. The PLC used in this system has been operated with the help of GX Work 3 software and Ladder Diagram based programming approach. The complete simulation work of the overall system has been carried out with the use of HMI and GX Design 3 tool again provided by Mitsubishi.
