Solar Powered Trash Bins

In early February, the city installed 35 new solar-powered trash-recycling bins downtown. The compacting trashcans are designed to keep things cleaner and neater on the sidewalks. Because they hold and retain more trash, this will reduce overflow as well as the number of times the trash needs to be picked up, which is more cost effective. “The bins were funded through our recycling dollars earned by selling recyclables on behalf of Walnut Creek residents,” said councilmember Cindy Silva.
