Abstract: The Waste disposal techniques have become quite old for the modern period lately. The transfer of waste from the waste bins in the localities through the use of compactor trucks needs to be changed. It stands low on the efficiency scale. This can be improved by Channelizing waste through a separate corridor. The idea is to channelize the waste underground by using belt conveyor systems. The waste collector bins in the localities will be joined to the main conveyor heavy duty belts by small conveyor belts to move the waste. This waste will be taken to the waste processing plants by the belts fixed underground. The waste collector bins will be equipped with the pressure plates and will be connected to the network. As soon as the bin is full, it will send the information to the control centre. The operator at the centre can empty the bin by clicking a button. This will help to live monitor the waste and move it as soon as possible. The waste which is channelized can be easily segregated at the end where it enters the waste processing plant. Segregation of the waste will allow us to reuse the recyclable materials which most of the time are dumped in the landfills. The idea is to eliminate the Compactor Trucks as they cause pollution and congestion. Also many a times, waste materials are dropped out from the truck while carrying them to the processing plants which affects the riders behind it. The smoke from the trucks is dark and sooty which are the main causes for the lung diseases. Whereas the belt driven system will work on electricity. This energy can be harnessed by renewable energy resources or by power plants where the efficiency is the highest. The concept of underground tunneling in a well-planned layout is needed for laying of the sewer lines as they require heavy earth digging. Hence this underground waste transfer tunneling system can also be well established during the sewer line excavation work and can be implemented for the new smart cities which are going to be built. The efficient functioning of this system will save fuel, energy, time and creates an ecofriendly environment by cutting the carbon footprint.
