dc.description.abstract Improper disposal of refuse has in recent times caused harm to live and properties. In our cities and towns, it is common to find waste at inappropriate places such as gutters. This project focuses on the use of Internet of Things and smart systems to aid the waste management system, by providing an automated plastic bottle collection system. This project is focused on providing an efficient method of automating plastic bottle collection by placing value on all bottles. Value is placed on plastic bottles returned to motivate individuals to recycle; vouchers are generated per each bottle returned. The prototype of the automated plastic bottle collection monitors number of bottles, bin level and generate vouchers. Information on number of bottles and bin level are secured in a web application to determine when bins should be emptied en_US
