Dustbins (or Garbage bins, Trash Cans, whatever you call them) are small plastic (or metal) containers that are used to store trash (or waste) on a temporary basis. They are often used in homes, offices, streets, parks, etc. to collect the waste. In some places, littering is a serious offense and hence Public Waste Containers are the only way to dispose of small waste. In this project, I have designed a simple system called Smart Dustbin using Arduino, Ultrasonic Sensor, and Servo Motor, where the lid of the dustbin will automatically open itself upon detection of the human hand.

Required Component

  1. Arduino Uno with cable
  2. Ultrasonic Sensor 
  3. Arduino IDE software on your Computer
  4. Mini Servo Moter (S9)
  5. Jumper Wire 
  6. Switch 
  7. Battery and Battery Clipper

Instructions for this Project
