Singapore ‘smart’ waste bins alert cleaners when full

Bangkok Post, FEB 12, 2018

SINGAPORE: After a successful pilot for solar-panelled “smart” trash bins, industrial property developer JTC has put up more than 40 of these bins around the island.

The bins, called Bigbelly bins, have an internal compactor to crunch rubbish and can handle about five times more trash than another of a similar size. They have an enclosed design that prevents scavengers, pests and odours, and are connected wirelessly for easy monitoring and management, TODAY reported on Monday.
