Solar power is harnessed to save time, energy and gas by reducing daily trash pick ups.

Solar trash compactors

I love to see the use of solar energy places and was surprised to find out about Big Bell Solar trash compactors and systems. My sister pointed one out during a visit to Case Western Reserve University's campus recently.

The compactors reduce the need for daily trips to pick up waste and several cities and venues have adopted the BigBelly Solar system.
