Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is a campaign by the government of India that aims to make it as a best and clean country of the world. With expansion of Internet of Things(IoT), devices such as Smartphones & sensors, we present a solution about the Smartbin is a network of dustbins which integrates the idea of IoT with wireless Sensor Network. It is possible to collect large amount of garbage. In the metropolitan cities it is not possible to check each and every place where the garbage dump yard is full or not. So these dustbins are interfaced with microcontroller based systems having sensors system. In this approach the sensors are placed in the dustbins that are located in the public areas, to sense the level of garbage in the dustbins. When the garbage reaches the threshold limit, the status of the dustbin is updated and this status is concerned by the authorities. Then the authority will give an indication to the concerned person by sending SMS using GSM technology. The webpage created shows the collection of waste and the particular date and arrival time of the vehicle. The main motto of the system is to avoid overflowing and stinking dustbins. The presented solution provides calculation of more efficient garbage truck routes. As an output, we manage the waste in different type of box using automation. The system detect the wet and dry waste and also separate it by automatically.
