In the past few decades, the rapid growth of the urbanization rate has taken place, and therefore, plans for sustainable urban planning are required. Using new technologies and a strategic approach, the concept of smart cities is approaching the whole world. A smart city is not built without a smart waste management system. In this article, our model describes the application of “solar-assisted smart solid waste dustbin” for the management of the solid waste system of the city. In our model, the volume of solid wastes has been drastically reduced compared to the conventional process. It reduces the cost of transportation and reduces the odor of waste. First of all, organic waste is ground by grinders and, at the same time, the humidity content is heated to reduce the weight of the waste. Compressors will then compress, and finally, compressed waste materials are stored in the storage unit. The control system is run by solar energy, and the systems are semi-automated. In addition, rented materials are collected by bin to be used for agricultural purposes. Today’s traditional bins will be able to efficiently manage these wastes as they waste their waste on the road, and it may cause insects and mosquito breeding. Dismantling in dirty environments also causes serious illness. It controls through solar energy and is a semi-automatic system; by doing this, we can change the contaminated environment.
