The trash can situation in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district just got a lot smarter and fatter.
As part of an effort to clean up the dirty streets in the northeastern San Francisco neighborhood, city Supervisor Matt Haney last week announced the installation of 68 Bigbelly “smart” trash cans.
The Bigbelly bins, which compact waste and are very difficult to break open or otherwise extract trash from, are being installed over 50 square blocks in the Tenderloin neighborhood.
The project increases the number of trash cans in the Tenderloin district twelvefold. One bin will be situated at virtually every intersection in the neighborhood. The installation is scheduled to be completed by the end of June.
