Recycling stations across the metro are getting a makeover.
The ‘Big belly recycling stations’ use a solar-powered compactor to allow the station to hold up to five times more trash than a typical can of the same size.
“The sun powers the mechanism, that uses a sensor, that lets it know how full the trash can is,” T.O. Bowman, with the City of Oklahoma City, said.
Once the station is full, an email will be sent to Downtown OKC Inc. Clean Team.
