This paper deals with solid waste monitoring and management system, the integration of communication technologies such as RFID, GPS, GSM and GIS for truck monitoring system In proposed system, truck database has been developed in the way that information of truck ID, driver ID, date and time of waste collection, etc are complied and stored for monitoring and management activities. The proposed system would be able to monitor the solid waste collection process and management the overall collection process. It would provide in time solid waste collection, tracking the vehicle position through the GIS database and also overcome the disadvantages such as usage of minimum route, low fuel cost, clean environment and available vehicle. The technologies that would be used in the proposed system are good enough to ensure the practical and perfect for solid waste collection process monitoring and management for green environment.
