Smart waste management concept nowadays emerges a new phenomenon and it is mostly applied in the Metropolitan cities where the production of the waste is high and management of waste and awareness about the waste management in between the people is very low. Smart waste management helps to reduce the waste, create waste to energy source also it helps to keep the environment clean and neat. All the city’s urban local bodies depending upon the available technology have to spend the money and innovate the new concept of waste management that is the main purpose of smart waste management.
