Research and industries are devoting a great effort in getting cities and communities smarter. This is a strategic but also very complex process that involves several actors to address many challenges. Following this line, in this paper, we propose a new recycling system based on smart wastes. To this end, we present the Big Bucket IoT Cloud environment where smart dumpsters are equipped with low-cost sensors and open source easy-to-use hardware and software.
