City officials in Corpus Christi, TX. are beginning tests on new recycling bins to help with an ongoing battle against wind-blowing contents throughout the city.

Wind seems to be a big problem when it comes to recycling carts in Corpus Christi, as recycling contents are regularly polluting city streets once bins have been blown over.

The innovation comes as a solution to satisfy the community’s needs and “provide a cleaner and more sustainable city,” an official email states.
