Eight high-tech trash bins designed to improve efficiency and maximise resources are now being use in Romford town centre. The solar powered Bigbelly bins feature an innovative compacting mechanism that crushes rubbish to maximise their capacity. They are also fitted with sensors that send alert to the cleaning team when they are full.
The bins, which were introduced in South Street, reduce the number of collections, allowing street cleaners to focus on other cleaning tasks.
Cabinet member for environment Councillor Osman Dervish said: “By introducing these bins we will be able to tackle litter at one of the busiest hotspots in the borough.
“The Bigbelly bins are a similar size to normal bins, but with their special technology will transform the look of South Street as they keep more waste contained, de-clutter the area, and create a cleaner and greener Romford.”
