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.
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.
