Get in My Belly

Posted by Luke on March 24, 2010

I was walking down the street in Philly on Wednesday and came across a really innovate product called the Big Belly Solar Compactor.  It’s a solar powered trash can that compacts garbage thereby reducing hauling requirements and space.  Essentially, whenever you deposit trash, it compacts it.  The City of Philadelphia will save $13 million over 10 years by deploying 500 of these machines in replacement of 700 normal trash containers.

    Very innovative. I didn’t know trash was so exciting!
