Abstract: Now-a-days, in many cities/towns, we see that the garbage bins are filled with lot of waste which won’t take care by municipal people due to lack of information about it. In this paper, we present a solution for garbage monitoring system using Raspberry Pi and Ultrasonic sensor. A central system made up of Raspberry pi which monitors the garbage bins frequently and collects information about the amount of waste present in the garbage bins with help of ultrasonic sensor placed over it. The collected data will be updated to the municipal officer or to a user who is accessing it via an application in the form of GUI. This system monitors the garbage bins and informs about the level of garbage collected in the garbage bins in a web page or an application. Based on the information collected, the bins which have waste above some prescribed level will be cleaned up. This solution helps us to keep our city clean as well as to reduce traffic that occurs due to unnecessary travelling of municipal vehicles in the city/town.
