Solar Trash Compactor Hits the Streets of L.A.
Recently, two BigBelly Solar trash compactors have been installed in Echo Park. Do you think this will make an impact on the amount of litter on the streets? We can only hope there is an improvement.
Developed by entrepreneur James Poss, the BigBelly Solar trash compactor can hold four times as much trash as a normal trashcan. The BigBelly trash compactors were purchased with funds allocated to the Echo Park’s Trash Abatement Project (TAP) by the City Office of Community Beautification and Keep Los Angeles Beautiful. The LA Stormwater Program donated the time and produced the graphics that appear on the BigBelly trash devices.
