Abstract: With the increasing number of world population and the rapidly expanding globalization of the world, waste is one of the main issues that concerns many parties. The World Bank estimates that in 2025, the population of the world’s urban population will reach 4.3 billion and the rate of waste production is about 1.42 kg per day for every resident.Based on World Bank reports, there is a positive relationship in which waste generated is directly proportional to the level of economic prosperity and the level of industrial growth achieved. Today a smart solid waste management system uses Internet-of-Things (IoT) technology in order to automate several traditional waste management processes. It is proven in several smart cities such as Nottingham, England and Hamburg, Germany that implementation of this system in the right way gives many benefits. In this paper, a systematic literature review methods is used to collect and analyse related works on smart solid waste management systems.Literature has been compiled based on five major databases including, IEEE Xplore, Google Scholar, Springer, Web of Science (WoS) and ACM Digital Library.Literatures were searched based on several relevant keywords and the ones selected were the ones that satisfy selection criteria defined. A total of 25 literature met the requirements set, and 12 of them are reviewed in this paper. Research gaps from an existing works have been concluded, based on the results of the study.
Keyword: Systematic Literature Review; Smart Solid Waste Management System; Internet-of-Things; Smart City.
