Solar Powered Trash Cans in Philly

The City of Philadelphia has chosen a novel new way to reduce man hours spent on trash pick up. They have installed 700 solar powered trash cans/compactors in the city where regular trash cans used to be. The new combo cans are solar powered and will need to be emptied only 25% as often as the normal cans. This will save the city $845,000 a year.
