Solar Compactor Bins      

Council is trialling Bigbelly solar compactor bins at Julia Reserve Youth Precinct in Oran Park and Birriwa Reserve Youth Play Space in Mount Annan. Bins are fitted with sensors that when triggered compact the waste, allowing the bin to fit up to two and a half times more waste than a standard bin.

The Bigbelly solar compactor bins are also fitted with smart sensors which provide real-time updates on the status of the bin including when it is full and needs to be emptied. Collection schedules can then be designed around real-time data.

If the trial is successful, Council will consider rolling out the Bigbelly Solar Bins and smart sensors to high volume areas across the Camden area.
