Solar powered trashcans that compact it’s contents to hold the amount of 4 normal trashcans – GENIUS!  I love forward thinking products and companies and BigBelly Solar has just caught my eye.  Other cities are already on board with installing these trash compactors onto their city streets and recently, Los Angeles joined that list!  The first few BigBelly Solar trash devices were recently installed in Echo Park!  (Check out LA Stormwater Blog.)  I can’t wait for them to install a few of these in Downtown LA and other parts of LA!

Check out this video for more info on how these solar powered trash compactors work and how they save emissions, fuel, and money! ..and the video starts off with Oscar the Grouch! ;D

Did anyone think of Wall-e?? ;D
