With rapid rise of in human population there has been significant increase in waste produced across the world. This paper is a survey on the multiple methods that have been devised in different cities to combat the increasing waste produced. Burning, classifying of wastes are been implemented in a large scale across nations. Classifying the waste before treating them will be very useful and will save both money and the environment. Mainly wastes have to be classified as plastic and non-plastic since all forms of plastic are non-biodegradable and other wastes generally decompose quite easily.This venture focusses on smart waste management, but not quite factory-specific and can be accessible in every house, thereby every day-to-day waste could be segregated. This smart bin uses Internet of Things (IOT) and segregation-specific sensors as a medium for separating the wastes. The Internet of Things (IOT) is defined to be a conception where surrounding entities are linked through wired and wireless setups devoid of user interference.  A discrete state control system is also implemented to avert dumping of waste into bins.  Once the bins are full, an alert is sent to the local garbage collector requesting for garbage collection.
