Abstract: Sesama is an android based application to help urban communities to connect to a waste bank nearby to gain more benefits from their waste. It allows users to order the waste bank to pick up their recyclables from their place, to monitor transactions with the waste bank and to decide what to do with the money deposit in the waste bank. A waste bank is a community-based recycling centre where solid waste collected, sorted and temporarily deposited before sold to recycling agent and factory. The application help the waste bank connected to its customers by responding to picking-up order, providing real time transaction information, and also helping the waste bank in creating reports and database which previously conducted traditionally on paper. This innovation has helped the community in increasing their interest on separating their waste, assisted the waste bank in its administrative works and helped government in monitoring the amount of solid waste recycled and delivered to landfill.
