SOLAR

Solar-powered bins which send text messages and emails when they need emptying have been installed in a seaside town.

Ten of the Big Belly bins, which can store and compact rubbish at the same time, have been placed at Boscombe Precinct in Dorset.

The bins are able to hold up to 800 litres of rubbish – eight times more than a standard model.

Sensors fitted in the bins are able to detect when they are full, and a text message or email is then sent to Bournemouth Borough Council.

Councillor Jane Kelly, cabinet member for partnerships and regeneration at the council, said: “The new solar-powered bins will be a welcome addition to the area. Not only do they look great, they also hold more waste meaning fewer refuse collections are required.

“We are working hard to make improvements to Boscombe Precinct to help smarten up the area and make it a place that residents, businesses and visitors can be proud of.”

The new bins are part of work to improve the precinct, including removing an old fountain, surfacing repairs and the installation of decorative paving.
