Automatic Waste Segregation System

Download Project Document/Synopsis



Waste Management and segregation is a much-needed process in metro cities and urban areas due to spreading of diseases. It is estimated that India produces 42.0 million tons of municipal solid waste annually at present. Waste lying littered in the surrounding, dumped on open lands, becomes a major problem for various types of disease-causing bacteria and viruses hence, segregation, transport, handling and disposal of waste must be managed properly to minimize the risks of the public and environment. When mixed dry and wet waste breaks down in lowland, it creates nasty greenhouse gases. Segregation makes it attainable to utilize and recycle the waste effectively. This waste segregator system can easily segregate waste. When waste is thrown in the pipe, IR sensor will sense the waste. Waste is divided into three categories namely Wet, Dry and Metallic. Another sensor will sense the garbage category. As per the algorithm used, if the waste is metallic then the mechanism will bring the metal collecting bin below the pipe and with the help of servo motor the waste will fall into the metal bin. Similarly, the process will repeat if wet waste is sensed. If the sensor doesn’t activate both the sensor category then the waste will be considered to be a dry waste.
