Big Belly Solar Bins Installed Uptown
In efforts to continue to leave a smaller environmental footprint uptown, Uptown Saint John Inc., in partnership with the City of Saint John, have installed three innovative solar garbage bins uptown.? This is a pilot project, and we hope that it will have a noticeable effect on the cleanliness and esthetic of our historic uptown streets.
These cutting-edge garbage bins are solar compacting so they don?t need to be emptied as often and they are set to electronically notify an operator when they are full, thus eliminating the need to be routinely checked.
There are three bins we are utilizing for this project, located at three points on King Street; the top of King Street in the King?s Square area, the corner of King Street & Germain Street, and at the foot of King Street.?
