© 2014 IEEE. Intelligent solid waste bin is essential to develop an efficient and dynamic waste management system. This research presents the implementation and execution of an integrated sensing system and algorithm for solid waste bin to automate the solid waste management process. Several sensing methods have been integrated and have combined their verdicts that offer the detection of bin condition and its parameter measurement. A number of test runs have been conducted to assess the functioning of the prototype system. The outcomes showed that the sensing system with the algorithm is efficient and intelligent and can be simply used to automate any solid waste bin management process.
