The BigBelly Solar Trash Can is a revolutionary idea that "can save cities millions." The idea behind the solar trash cans is that they’re designed to automatically compact whatever garbage is inside the cans, which is a garbage space-saver, but also limits the number of cans you’d need.

The main attraction towards the BigBelly Solar Trash Can is the garbage bin's ability to send a text message to city hall when it’s full! The BigBelly Solar Trash Can is able "to reduce the size of the trash inside by 80 percent." This is an amazing idea and with cities like Boston and Chicago already using them, it’s only a matter of time before they’re utilized everywhere.
