Exploiting future opportunities and avoiding problematic upcoming events is the main characteristic of a proactively adapting system, leading to several benefits such as uninterrupted and efficient services. In the era when IoT applications are a tangible part of our reality, with interconnected devices almost everywhere, there is potential to leverage the diversity and amount of their generated data in order to act and take proactive decisions in several use cases, smart waste management as such. Our work focuses in devising a system for proactive adaptation of behavior, named ProAdaWM. We propose a reasoning model and system architecture that handles waste collection disruptions due to severe weather in a sustainable and efficient way using decision theory concepts. The proposed approach is validated by implementing a system prototype and conducting a case study.
