Abstract

Environmental pollution poses a threat to the ecological balance, economy and budgets of states. For this reason, many studies have been carried out recently to reduce environmental pollution, increase recycling, protect the environmental order and prevent economic deterioration. Many municipalities all over the world put recycling bins at certain points in cities, districts and even neighborhoods. However, these boxes are only designed to dispose of materials that can be recycled according to certain chambers with human hands and eyes. People separate their garbage and come and throw their garbage into that bin. Despite this, it can be seen that different wastes are in different bin and a manpower is needed to separate them again. In the project, recyclable materials (metals, transparent materials and others) will be separated into different bins by using sensors and smart systems without using human power.
