Abstract

Solid waste management has been a major problem in railway wagons for many decades in India. It is a well-known fact that if solid waste is not taken care properly it is going to harm the environment drastically. The purpose of this project is to collect solid waste thrown out of the window by the passengers and recycle or reuse. Two conveyor belts are fixed one above another between two parallel frames of the window. Four collecting tanks, each pair at both ends of one conveyor belt are also attached. The tanks are equipped with a level sensor (Ultrasonic sensor) and a GSM module. Two outlet pipes are attached from inside that direct the waste onto the conveyor. Inside the coach, each coop is provided with a switch, which on pressing the conveyor belt starts and thus prevent it to run for the whole time without any work to be done. The whole system comprising of two sets of the conveyor belt is enclosed in a casing between the parallel frames of the window.
