Smart bins installed across Campbelltown

Several eco-friendly CleanCube bins are now being installed across the area, including in the Campbelltown and Ingleburn CBDs.

The 42 solar-powered, 240 litre bins can store up to eight times more waste than a regular bin and are designed to reduce odour emitted from the bins.

The bins contain a compressing mechanism which periodically crushes the garbage within, significantly reducing the number of times the bins require emptying.

They are solar powered and contain hand detection and smart fill level safety sensors as well as anti-graffiti wrapping.

“These smart bins will be a welcome addition to Campbelltown and will have a positive effect on our environment and streetscape,” General Manager Lindy Deitz said.

“They have been successfully used in cities like Melbourne, reducing time spent by staff emptying bins meaning more time can be spent maintaining our public domain,” Ms Deitz said.

“It will also result in less truck movements through our CBDs which will reduce traffic and emissions,” she said.

Five of the CleanCube bins are being installed as part of the On Q activation program in the Campbelltown CBD.
