A public trash can powered by solar energy.

This can was one of the first the City of Philadelphia put out. It is located at Chestnut & 7th.

The can has a compactor in it, hence why power is needed. The cans can hold eight times as much trash as a non-compactor can. The city expects to collect trash less often, thereby saving labor costs.
