Harnessing the Sun to Help

Great news on the green front: solar-powered trash compacting receptacles were installed last week on “The Strip” on Broad Street, and at Surfside, Jetties, and Children’s beaches. Additional installations will take place as the Department of Public Works sees fit. After solar-powered trash bins were approved for funding at town meeting this year, BigBelly Solar won the contract via the state bid list. Each receptacle is computerized to report real-time data to let the DPW know how full the bin is, saving time and energy. After just nine days of use, Director of Nantucket’s DPW Kara Buzanoski is pleased with their performance, saying, “The receptacles seem to be working well.”
