Abstract : Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a pervasive computing technology that can be used to improve waste management by providing early automatic identification of waste at bin level. In this paper, we propose a smart bin application based on information self-contained in tags associated to each waste item. The wastes are tracked by smart bins using a RFID-based system without requiring the support of an external information system. Two crucial features of the selective sorting process can be improved using this approach. First, the user is helped in the application of selective sorting. Second, the smart bin knows its content and can report back to the rest of the recycling chain.
