Solar-Powered Trash Compactors In Pasadena

With 40 new Big Belly solar-powered trash compactors installed in Pasadena’s most traveled pedestrian areas, everyone can dispose of their incidental waste conveniently while helping the city save energy.

By crushing discarded materials into a solid mass, each receptacle is able to hold about 200 gallons of trash – five times as much waste as a standard public trash receptacle.

While a standard receptacle requires daily pickup, Big Belly compactors need only weekly pickup, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

The portable compactors, now 50 in total, are cordless, self-charging, solar-powered and energy-efficient.

The high-tech trash compactors were installed in public rights of way by the Street Maintenance and Integrated Waste Management Division of the Pasadena Public Works Department and mark another effort to bring sustainable practices to the city.  Nearest intersections are shown below:
