Waste Management is one of the essential issues that the world is currently facing does not matter if the country is developed or under developing. The key issue in this waste segregation is that the trash bin at open spots gets flooded well ahead of time before the beginning of the following cleaning process. The isolation of waste is done by unskilled workers which is less effective, time-consuming, and not plausible because of a lot of waste. So, we are proposing an automated waste classification problem utilizing Machine Learning and Deep Learning algorithms. The goal of this task is to gather a dataset and arrange it into six classes consisting of glass, paper, and metal, plastic, cardboard, and waste. The model that we have used are classification models. For our research we did comparisons between four algorithms, those are CNN, SVM, Random Forest, and Decision Tree. As our concern is a classification problem, we have used several machine learning and deep learning algorithm that best fits for classification solutions. For our model, CNN accomplished high characterization on accuracy around 90%, while SVM additionally indicated an excellent transformation to various kinds of waste which were 85%, and Random Forest and Decision Tree have accomplished 55% and 65% respectively
