Solar Powered Trash Compactors Come to Arlington
As part of the recent Green Communities designation, Arlington has
received five (5) BigBelly Solar Compactors to place around Town. These
compactors are completely self-powered and use solar power for 100% of
their energy needs. The compactors are the size of regular trash
receptacles, yet their capacity is five times greater. Increased capacity
reduces collection trips and can cut fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions
by 80%. The Town installed the solar powered compactors the week of July
12th at the following locations:
Mass Ave. at Park Ave.
Menotomy Rocks Park at the Jason Street Entrance
Mass Ave. at Medford St.
Mass Ave. near Dag’s Delicatessen
Robbins Farm Park on Eastern Ave.
