Inspired by: Now days, in most Nigerian cities, there are many dust bins which are in bad conditions. The garbage in a dust bin are all overflowed and also spelled out of the dust bins. Many people are throwing garbage on those bins which are already full or overflowed. Due to the unclean garbage bins, bad smell is created and also toxic and unhygienic gases which are bad for the environment are produced. This creates a very bad look of the city which is a way to support to the air pollution and to some harmful diseases which are easily spreadable.
It can also be seen in the markets or public places that most dustbins are manually operated and it requires basic monitoring the dust bin every day to confirm that weather occupied or not. So, that dustbin is not user –friendly system.
Other problems that can be seen are many people are not interested to the use of dustbin for littering because they are not interesting to come near the dustbin. So this project can attract the attention of people to the use of dustbin because it is very easy to use and the system tries to resolve the problems associated with the current system.
