Philly Installs Solar Powered Trash Cans
- 29 may 2009
Philadelphia is adding another unique touch to it’s waste recovery program. Last week we saw Philly’s recycling trucks wrapped in colorful graphics – and now, Inhabitat shares the news that the city is rolling out over 500 solar powered, compacting garbage cans. The bins can hold about eight times as much waste as a normal garbage can, and are estimated to save the city close to 12 million dollars over the next 10 years.
