Solar Trash Can Pilot Project [2010-07-09]

The solar trash can are being tested in three Long Beach locations, in partnership with the Business Improvement Districts, to test the success of the solar technology. Ultimately, placing these bins in highly activated, high traffic areas, will help the visibility of these bins and their technology, will draw visitors to the area and highlight another green project in the City. The three installations will include on the 200 block of Pine Avenue in Downtown Long Beach; 2nd Street and Argonne Avenue in Belmont Shore; and Atlantic Avenue and Carson Street in Bixby Knolls.

“This solar trash can is a great addition to downtown Long Beach,” said Kraig Kojian, President of The Downtown Long Beach Associates. “Along with our other green projects such as tree plantings, LED lights, bike racks and the Long Beach Bike Festival, this solar trash can supports the greening of our Downtown.”
