This new smart bin can be found in Killybegs.
PEL has developed a solar-powered street bin that compacts waste, and allows the bins to hold 10 times their usual load. The waste is captured in a 120-litre wheelie bin housed inside the street unit.
The bins are fitted with cloud-based software that provides real-time information on the bin and alerts a local authority when it is full and needs to be emptied. This would reduce the number of times a council would need to empty the bins.
