Solar compacting containers for mixed municipal waste. A solar panel charges a battery, which drives an electric motor that compacts the waste. The container is still on-line and provides data of waste level.
As part of a six months pilot project, up to 30 waste containers were placed in public areas in the centre of Prague. On the basis of the subsequent evaluation, Prague City Hall may expand or modify the project.
