Waste Sorting Dustbin with Arduino based Smart Motor Rotating Tray

2020 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
Due to continuous growth in technology and industrialization there is rapid increase in the type and the volume of waste being generated. People throw garbage without realizing that it is affecting their own health and will degrade the future generation's living standards. In India, majority of waste is being disposed in a very unsatisfactory manner. Ensuring efficient waste management is becoming a threat for the government. For a developing country like INDIA, upgrading the current method of

One of the undeniable fact is that, if we continue to dump land sites at the current rate it may lead to severe environmental hazards. This may not only have an impact on environment, but also on the health of the society. This paper proposes a system in which waste is segregated at a basic level itself. This is achieved by using sensors for different types of waste. Once waste is been detected it has to be dropped into the slot allotted for it. This is done by dividing the bin into different slots using PVC solid sheet. A motor wing action is employed to drop the waste into appropriate slot.
