Increase in population around the globe today has brought about significant increase in the amount of waste generated. In other words, detection, monitoring and management of waste have become a challenge in developing countries. Due to the indiscriminate disposal of solid waste at dump sites and the environmental pollution posed by this activity, this paper proffers a solution to tackle this menace. The solution adopts an innovative approach by the application of Internet of Things (IoT) to implement a smart refuse (garbage) monitoring system. This application will tackle challenges of untimely and inefficient waste management by designated agencies.
