The City of Burnside is the first Council in SA to participate in a trial of a solar bin, which is at the entrance of the George Bolton Swimming Centre Burnside for the next two weeks.
The bin, organised through East Waste and installed and supplied through Smart City Solutions, is solar powered, has GPS capabilities, automatic compaction, can be remotely monitored and sends a text message when it needs to be emptied.
The bin will compact rubbish to reduce the number of times it needs to be emptied. This is eight times more efficient than regular bins.
