Solid waste management is a global issue that affects everyone on the planet. Individuals and governments make judgements about waste and consumption that influence community efficiency, health, and cleanliness. Poorly managed trash causes a variety of health issues for residents as well as a variety of environmental challenges such as poisoning the world's oceans, clogging sewers, and causing flooding. The Governments are aggressive in many developing countries to make this waste management a simplified process and will make this universe free from dumping waste at any location through their SWATCH BHARAT ABHIYAAN along with technology driven Smart Waste Management. Many research on smart waste management have been conducted, but none have addressed the issue of streamlining the system so that all (from people to Corporation disposal sites) is regarded as a participant in the structure. In this paper, we suggest a smart garbage management structure built around the Internet of Things (IoT) it will increase citizen waste management awareness. The proposed automatic system will help to implement a solid process for smarter waste management. The proposed IoT-based system was applied in Pune City in collaboration with Pune Municipal Corporation. The advantages of our system over the other similar system are that we had considered all the entities into consideration for waste management which includes the household, waste picker van and even the dumping station accessing our system using an Android and Web application. Overall it will be 360o systems for better waste management with complete automation.
