Solar Powered Smart Bins Rolled Out at Shelly Beach

With one eye on the future, Northern Beaches Council is trialling two solar powered self-compacting smart bins at Shelly Beach.

The trial is part of the Smart Beaches Project, a world-first initiative that uses innovative technology to increase safety as well as improve public amenities at beaches.

Mayor Michael Regan said the smart bins will be of significant benefit to the community as they compact waste and have sensors to alert collection teams when they are nearing capacity to avoid overflow.

This process also allows Council to collect data and better schedule rubbish collections over time.

The Mayor added Shelly Beach was deliberately chosen as a trial site due to its popularity all year round with local residents as well as visitors to the Northern Beaches.

“Council is always keen to explore avenues to improve waste management around our beaches and parks.

“No one likes to see piles of rubbish falling out of bins and it can be difficult to keep up with demand at times.

“These smart bins compact waste to increase capacity, which is significant - plus we are also hoping it will result in an improved service which is more cost effective for ratepayers,’’ Mayor Regan said.

Smart Beaches has been part funded by the Federal Government’s Smart Cities and Suburbs Program and is also being completed in partnership with Lake Macquarie City Council and the University of Technology, Sydney.
