Solar Powered Compacting in Media PASolar Compacting Trash Can in Media, Delaware County, PA

Compacting trash is a great way to save on space and lessens the amount of times a trash can has to be emptied.  Street trash cans on busy streets can often be eyesores, with over flowing trash, if the trash pick up does not keep up with the input to a can.

Not too long ago I noticed in Media, Delaware County that a regular trash can was replaced with a solar compacting trash can made by BigBelly Solar.  Wow!

I viewed the video provide on the BigBelly Solar website and was pleasantly surprised to see that the City of Philadelphia has invested in these solar compacting cans as well.

It uses the same amount of energy as a Christmas Tree light bulb and when the can is close to being totally full, it sends out a text message to control central and a pick up is scheduled. 

Using the power of the sun along with the creative ideas of inventors is such a good thing!

What a cool idea.  I've yet to see these but hope to see more of them around the area!  Are these all over Media or just a few spots?

Love your blog background, by the way...years ago as a kid, I delivered 'Town Talk'!

That is amazing!  I'm happy to see that an US city is implementing this advanced waste management technology.  We have all the technology here but all too often, it doesn't get utilized.

John, This is the only one I have seen so far in Media.  There may be others.  A delivery person for Town Talk, that's great!  Where was your territory?  It's a great local paper.  Thanks for stopping!

Silvia, Media is very progressive and they just keep going forward, which is good. 

Roy, I had not either. 

Thanks for stopping everyone!
