Challenge / Goal
This project helps to prevent the problem of overflowing bins, reduce litter on the streets and cut down on unnecessary work as they only need emptied when full.
The 'Big Belly Bins' are fitted with waste compactors which ensure they need emptied less often than standard designs. The innovative bins have proved to need emptying 7 times less than standard bin designs. They use wireless technology to alert authorities when they are full.
