Prahran Square is a unique centrepiece of cultural and community life for residents of Stonnington. The vision is for Prahran Square to be recognised as a public space that is owned and enjoyed by all, enhancing the commercial sustainability and vibrancy of the Chapel Street precinct.
Smart City Solutions have become part of that vision, installing two solar-powered, compacting CleanCubes in the Square. After the successful installation at Ardrie Park, the City of Stonnington added one recycling and one general CleanCube bin to the square to improve their waste efficiencies.
The custom decals on the front of the Cubes help the public to correctly identify what can be recycled, ensuring as much waste is diverted from landfill as possible.
“These smart bins are a win for our environment and a win for road users – they don’t need to be emptied as often which means less trucks on our streets and less fuel needed for the trucks. Going forward, this ‘smart city’ initiative will help us better manage our services, energy and resources.”
