As a developing nation and as the second most populous country in the world we in India face unique problems that require unique solutions. One such problem is waste management. In this project we propose a self sustaining maintenance free system that uses a combination of recent communication developments like MANET and solar power. MANET is used in this project as a communication back bone for the whole system for various reasons like low cost, easy to implement and flexible networks. MANETs  are self reconfiguring and self healing networks that have great reliability and very low power requirements. Hence these networks can work even with very low power and small solar panels that can be fitted on to the garbage bins itself. In this project each garbage bin is fitted with the AD Hoc transceiver  for communication, a sensor for monitoring the level of garbage in the bin and also the solar panel for powering the whole node. Each node is provided with a GPS location of the bin, using which a GIS system based on mapping applications like Google maps can be used to monitor the status of the bins.
