The Radio-Frequency-Identification (RFID) technology uses wireless radio communication to identify and trail tagged objects without any form of a direct link. Today, the RFID technology has increasingly been adopted in many industries and is regarded as one of the significant factors in making work easier and efficient. RFID application is increasing rapidly with the potentiality to label any item with an affordable communications chip and then read that label with a reader. Endless applications of this technology range from asset tracking to security tracking to supply chain management. The increase in business operations of all forms in different sectors has led to challenges in solid waste management. To show some of the potential applications of RFID technology in the modern society, this paper explores the use of an e-tracking system in solid waste management using RFID technology. The paper then gives an overview of the technology's critical features which give it popularity in waste management and other fields. Application examples of RFID technology in waste management are also given. It is hoped that this report will provide valuable information to researchers in technological applications such as RFID, and that it can be used as a guideline for future research.
