Abstract—The way to increase the convenience of waste container users and monitor the level of waste container content can be by utilizing IoT technology and building an intelligent waste container system. Therefore, this study aims to conduct research and development (R&D) of an Internet of Things (IoT) control system to automatically open and close the lid of trash containers and detect the fullness of garbage in trash containers. This research method is a combination of experimental and survey methods. The research results show that the waste container control system effectively opens and closes the lid of the garbage container at a distance of about 40 cm between the distance ultrasonic sensor of garbage containers and users. In addition, the garbage janitor can monitor the level of garbage that is filled in the garbage container correctly through the website and telegram on his cell phone, and users of trash containers are more comfortable disposing of waste.
