Abstract: Solid waste management is a challenging and major problem of surroundings in the whole globe. Hence there is a need to evolve an effective system which can resolve this issue or at least decrease it to the minimum level. Nowadays, government across the world is planning to construct smart cities or attempt to transform the cities into smart cities. The solid waste collection is an essential point for surroundings and its effect on society must be regarded seriously in infrastructure of smart cities. IoT (internet of things) techniques can manage such services efficiently in smart cities. In this study solid management system based on Internet of Things is proposed which permits the municipal corporations to supervise the dustbin status over web server remotely and maintain the cities clean by optimizing time and cost needed for it. As soon as the dustbin has been filled its maximum level the department of waste management passes an alert message through GSM module so the department can send the waste collector vehicle to respective place to gather the garbage. The study helps in recognizing the smart garbage management systems that can be used to make the city clean and hygienic.
