Abstract:
    Our solution approaches the problem of ineffective waste management and collection and presents a solution that allows timely collection of waste in big cities with minimum fuel overhead.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Karachi Pakistan's biggest city with 24 million citizens on a daily basis, expel about 12,000 tons of solid wast, of which forty percent can be found on the city streets. Improper waste is causing the spread of infectious diseases and causes environmental deterioration. And this is only Karachi.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Beneficiaries: 1. Public 2. Municipal Authorities 3.Local Housing Authorities 4. The Government Since, the inception of Pakistan's first Smart City by Top City near M-1 motorway. Other, local residencias are making strives to develop their own Smart Cities. Thus, there is an obvious need.
How will the solution works
    The solution primarily has two ends. A hardware end- which includes a sensor along with a GPS meant to send data to the central server. The central server runs routing algorithms and transmits optimized routes to the android application(our Software end.) The application displays the most efficient routes to the trash bins that are filled above a certain level. So, no trips are made to empty dumpsters. Reducing time overhead and increasing efficiency of waste collection.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    None so far. The idea in essence is being implemented and has been implemented in many other cities of the world. However, in Pakistan no such company or firm is offering this solution.
