Abstract : It is very dreadful that huge liters of excrement are being deposited into the rivers across our country. The pollutants and toxins are assisting the amassing of the toxicant in water thus affecting aquatic life. Only when the detritus floating above the water bodies become persistent, the governments' plan of action is set about and unfortunately by that time, the life cycle in that water body breaks. This research work focuses on deploying a solution for the unfavorable effects on the floating refuse, and henceforth reduces the pollution caused due to the unsettled wastes including plastics and plant weeds. The project aims to develop a waste collecting boat to scavenge the water body and abolish the floating waste. This is done by employing a conveyor belt connected to the front line of the boat. Boat movement is established using a remote control application by incorporating an RF module along with an encoder-decoder pair. This method will reduce the cost of operation because of less human involvement and labor. Major challenges in implementing the boat are compact mechanical design and reliable power supply. The principle feature of this boat is the collection of refuse and floating weeds from the surface of the water into a basket which is removable .
