SolarStreetBin™ Weathers Storm Callum

SolarStreetBin™ Weathers Storm Callum in Port of Galway

SolarStreetBin™ Weathers Storm Callum

Storm Callum packing winds of 130KM per hour swept through Ireland last night bringing down trees, knocking out electricity & causing major inconvenience to those caught in its path.

The west of Ireland has been particularly hard hit by the latest Atlantic storm to visit our shores. The strong winds in combination with a high tide has brought flooding to Galway City.  The dock area, where PEL Waste Reduction Equipment has a number of the SolarStreetBinTM litter bins installed, is currently under water. However the bins are continuing to function because they are designed to take account of all weather conditions including being immersed in sea water.

SolarStreetBin™ weathers Storm Callum in Galway Harbour - 12 October 2018Galway Harbour installed the SolarStreetBinTM to address  an ongoing problem with overflowing bins in the car parks around the dock area.  The PEL Waste Reduction Equipment IoT bins have been hugely successful in solving those issues. The case study below details how the solar powered compacting litter bins solved the litter issues and also the problems caused by scavenging seagulls raiding the open style bins around the area.

Case Study: SolarStreetBin™ Installation in Port of Galway

The SolarStreetBin™ is manufactured from Zentec galvanised steel, primed and finished with a heavy-duty heat-cured polyester TGIC powder-coat top-coat. The use of Zentec galvanised steel, priming the surface of the steel and heat-curing the powder-coat finish imparts corrosion resistance to sea water and other environmental oxidants such as bird droppings, tree sap, dog urine, salt air etc. Additionally, all the mechanical elements of the SolarStreetBin™ are sited in the upper regions of the product so the bin will continue to function even when immersed in over 1 metre of water.

The PEL Waste Reduction Equipment SolarStreetBin™ is a heavy duty, vandal proof IoT litter bin which utilises either a standard 120Litre or 240Litre wheelie bin to hold litter waste. The SolarStreetBin™ incorporates an on-board solar powered motorised compaction system which increases the bins’ litter holding capacity by up to x10. The use of a standard wheelie bin means that standard collection equipment can collect the bin and the x10 capacity significantly increases its litter holding capacity. An integrated wireless bin-fill sensor monitors litter levels in real time and communicates this data to PEL Waste Reduction Equipment’s programmable BriteBin™ data management platform. BriteBin™ sends out an alert when a bin needs to be emptied. This monitoring and alert capability allows Port of Galway to focus litter collection resources on bins which require servicing thus increasing the overall efficiency of the collection service in and around the port area.

He also explained that the SolarStreetBin™  sends an email to the council when the bin needs to be collected so the council can offer collection-on-demand for their fleet of bins.
