Abstract or description

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging concept and that is currently under creation and
development. However, it has already made an impact on many research domains by providing new solutions and ideas particularly in waste management and recycling. The IoT concept has provided a new research path that is conducive with public awareness of environmental protection considerations and improving recycling rates. This paper focuses on plasterboard waste as an example to propose a smart waste management framework. The 3 layers of the IoT model has been extended to 4-layers by splitting the
application layer into knowledge management and visualization layer respectively. A smart waste management application has been developed, based on a case study of a local SME waste recycling company. This smart waste management system uses a service science approach, and it not only provides full logistical records for waste transportation but also provides waste collection arrangements and incident handling guidance to both management and operational staff.
