Even though we have different waste management services, they prove to be inefficient because of the lack of standard operating methods both collection-wise and logistics-wise. We present a novel method for waste collection management system. This system uses Internet of Things architecture. To ensure a robust, seamless system, we continuously monitor the dust bins and check the status of the amount of garbage filling up in the bins and when it reaches threshold level, alert will be triggered. Based on the alert, the optimized route will be calculated and sent to the garbage collection centre. The system is built using LolinNodeMCUIoT board, and Ultrasonic sensor module. With integrated route optimization, the system is made fuel efficient and effective resource management can be achieved. The compact design makes the system more reliable and accurate.
