Abstract: The Expeditious rise in the magnitude and kind of solid trashes deposited on the earth due to increase in the economic growth, industrialization and urbanization, is becoming a burgeoning problem for national and local governments to fortify protective and tenable management of waste. The segregation, Handing, Transport and disposal of waste needs to be properly managed inorder to minimise the risk to the health and safety of the public and the environment. The recessional value of waste is well accomplished only when it is segregated. In India the government spends over 25% of their budget on solid waste management. When the waste is segregated into multiple streams such as glass, metal, paper, plastic then it becomes more easy to recycle them and reuse them. Our intention is to separate the recyclable solid waste and collecting them in individual bins which could be used accordingly as per the applications. Programmble Logical Controller helps us just doing that under hard conditions. We use IR sensor, Capacitive and Inductive proximity sensors to detect each object which is moving on a conveyor belt and is segregated and collected in various bins with the help of gates, which is controlled by Programmable Logical Controller. The dust bin employs the sensing mechanism to distinguish between the wastes.
