As there is a rapid increase in the present population waste management has become the serious problem in the current world. So in this paper we are proposed a new system of waste management using an android mobile app with Bluetooth enabled smart dustbin. This android application controlled bot through the lines drawn on the floor. Usually the lines are predefined throughout the path. The predefined paths may a white line on a black surface or vice-versa. The smart dustbin detects a person using IR sensor, if person is detected automatically it will open the cap of the dustbin and if he moves away from the dustbin it will automatically close the cap of the dustbin using stepper motor. It can also be able to detect amount of garbage and odour present in the dustbin using sensors. If any one of these things reached the threshold, it will automatically send a message to the concerned person through GSM module.
