The SolarStreetBin™ installed in Belmullet Co. Mayo is a solar powered litter bin with integrated compaction and communication modules which are planned to increase the efficiency of the litter collection service in the town.
SolarStreetBin™ Installed in Belmullet Co Mayo
Representatives from Belmullet Tidy Towns and Mayo County Council were on hand to supervise the installation of the SolarStreetBin™ bins last Friday in Belmullet. A combination of the 120 Litre capacity PEL120SSB – the compacting version of the SolarStreetBin™ and the PEL120 IoT Bin – the non-compacting model also with a capacity of 120 litres were installed.
There is a history of Belmullet embracing new technologies and the installation of the SolarStreetBin™ products continues that trend. The Tidy Towns Committee in conjunction with Mayo County Council were eager to explore options for improving the ascetics and the efficiency of the litter collection service in the town. The IoT litter bins from PEL Waste Reduction Equipment were selected for that task and both compacting and non-compacting variants of the SolarStreetBin™ Installed on the 6th July 2018.
Historically litter bins in Belmullet were collected a number of times each week irrespective of the litter levels within the bins. Now the bin-fill sensor on the SolarStreetBin™ will allow litter levels to be monitored and an alert issued when a bin needs to be emptied. The monitoring and alerts functions will mean that Mayo County Council can focus their collection resources on the bins that are full and require service. Ultimately this will mean an increase in the efficiency of the litter collection service on offer to the town.
