Solid waste generation has witnessed a significant global upsurge, necessitating a shift from traditional handling methods to more intelligent approaches aligned with the contemporary paradigm of Industry 4.0(I4.0). Traditional techniques of solid waste management (SWM) pose challenges in adequately coping with the burgeoning volume, demanding the adoption of smarter solution. Achieving sustainability, encompassing economic, social, and environmental facets, is hindered by the persistent reliance on manual processes in waste management. This article aims to address these issues by conducting a systematic literature review on the application of I4.0 in SWM considering sustainability. This study also suggests a path for future research through in-depth content analysis. The findings contribute valuable insights for policymakers, practitioners and researchers aiming to develop strategies for intelligent and sustainable solid waste management in the current global landscape.
