10 Jun Big Bellies in Discover Polk!
Here’s the first of five Big Bellies installed in our district
Five Big Bellies have been installed in the Discover Polk District. These are brightly colored rubbish bins that have a foot pedal to open the hopper, where trash is deposited and cannot be retrieved. A solar-powered compactor responds to volume and compacts trash so that one bin can contain the equivalent of between 8 and 13 regular city rubbish bins. A transponder inside the bins sends a signal to Recology when the bins are full or if the compactor malfunctions. Hopefully the new bins will help our Clean Team keep our sidewalks clean and safe. Let us know what you think!
