City Trash Cans Get a High-Tech Makeover

What is solar-powered, comes with Wi-Fi, and can notify its owners when it’s full? Baltimore City’s new “smart” trash cans!

The City has contracted with a company to install 4,000 of these new trash cans around the city to help improve trash collection and cleanliness.

WMAR reports:

These smart cans are so smart that the cans will let sanitation workers know when it’s time to empty them! The solar-powered cans come with Wi-Fi, which allows it to send information when it’s full to prevent overflowing.

Each trash can also acts as a trash compactor, so it can make more room until it needs to be emptied.
