Everyone’s been trying to figure out how to get energy from waste these days, but Waste Management is taking a different approach and trying to figure out how to put more energy into waste. Their introduction of solar powered trash compactors is meant to reduce the amount of waste produced in public places and other high traffic areas.


When the trash bins are filled to a certain level, a sensor indicates the machine should compact the trash. Then, a wireless signal is sent to tell the municipal workers that the compacted trash is ready to be picked up. The best part about these compactors is they are able to hold 5 times more garbage than a normal trash bin.


Keep an eye out for this great new introduction by Waste Management on street corners in the coming months.
