Abstract
This project elaborates on the design of a smart bin which incorporates Artificial Intelligence to promote source sorting of waste. Waste is a menace that has persisted in Ghana and in spite of the many efforts of the government and other private entities, there is still a lot that needs to be done to fully address this issue. One of the major proven causes of poor waste management is the inefficient sorting of waste at source (usually in households or offices) which results in a composite of waste of different waste types which makes the treatment of waste very difficult and inefficient. In this project, a bin capable of sorting waste at source and also deploying relevant waste data to a cloud server is developed.
