Can there be less litter on the land with fewer trash cans? It shows the port of Varberg. Since summer 2019 you will find 5 pcs Bigbelly smart solar-powered trash cans that keep the debris safe and create greater capacity of debris in the same place as before using modern technology.
In the past, 9 traditional 120 litre open bins have been deployed. These had a total litter capacity of 1080 litres that was emptied 3 times a day, resulting in 2430 discharges over a 3-month period (01/06-2018 – 31/8-2018) when the evaluation started.
The following year, the same 3-month period, a new test was performed. This time Varberg replaced the 9 traditional bins with 5 smart solar powered Bigbelly High Capacity with built-in compactor.
