Solar energy can compact street waste

Last weekend, I visited my family in Fife and spotted a BigBelly Solar bin which harvests energy from the sun and uses it to compact waste to an eighth of its size. I don't think this type of bin has been tried in Glasgow.

It could be suitable for some of our busy streets. I have asked council officials if they can consider this option as part of the replacement programme for street bins.
