Utilization Of Cigarette Waste As Biodegredable Plastic

Preface Cigarette is a cylinder of paper that has a length of about 70 mm – 120 mm in diameter 10 mm containing tobacco leaves are chopped and cork as filter. From every cigarette roughly 20% will be wasted as cigarette butts after being smoked by cigarette consumers. Cigarette butts are a lot of waste…

Trash of the same category will have almost the same electrical current (range); while waste with different categories will have a significant difference. Through this concept, researchers create sensors that can conduct electrical current, receive electrical current, and send it back to the microcontroller in the form of data. With this data, researchers created a microcontroller program to operate the bin automatically with the help of servo motors (open-closed) and set the range of data to detect organic, inorganic, and metal trash. Then, with the help of the program, the microcontroller can differentiate the waste by material and decide which lid will open. With this product, people are expected to be aware of the importance of waste processing, especially in sorting waste based on category. Furthermore, waste processing will become easier because the garbage has been sorted.

Smart Trash Bin

Garbage has become a serious problem in many big cities in Indonesia, especially in Jakarta. Currently, there are many people who do not know about the garbage problem. They ignore the importance of handling waste in the neighborhood because of the lack of awareness of the community itself. So far, the government has made several…
