Abstract

Due to Industrialization, Urbanization and the plummeted population; the generation rate of municipal solid waste in Indian cities has increased tremendously and is expected to grow substantially by 2050. Strong administration of solid waste is of grave significance to an urbanized setting which confronts a consistent growth in population, rising infrastructural requests and continual inflow of migrants. A smart city is created upon various particular components and strong administration of solid waste is one of the crucial components. “When a system is far from equilibrium, small islands of coherence have the capacity to shift the entire system”. Our project, thus, would be a sincere attempt at creating those ripples in a giant ocean to enforce some visible shifts in the current Solid Waste Management scenario. For that, we will be amalgamating Solid Waste Management with one of the latest and most powerful technologies of today i.e., UX (User Experience). UX aims at easing the human effort by introducing us to a systematic model that it follows for designing of a product or service. UX design must strive to be as inclusive as possible and so will we. Through this paper, we have collated the troubles people face during waste management and also what motivates some to manage waste appropriately. The goal is to design and develop an app that facilitates the waste management process with the aid of UX methodology.
