The PEL120SSB SolarStreetBin™ continues to receive extensive attention in the media as it is rolled out to customers across the UK.

The latest coverage has seen the SolarStreetBin™ featured on the BBC London News, the Sunday Telegraph ran a feature on how the product is solving issues with aggressive seagulls and cleaning up parks whilst the Daily Express reported on the PEL120SSB SolarStreetBin™ installation in Greenwich.

PEL120SSB SolarStreetBin™ Featured on BBC London NewsThe BBC London News showcased the PEL120SSB SolarStreetBin™ on its Wednesday 5th September evening news programme.  Gerry O’Boyle highlighted the merits of the SolarStreetBin™ including how it converts sunlight to energy which in turn powers a compactor that allows the PEL120SSB to hold the contents of up to 10 regular bins. 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.

Allison Ogden-Newton Chief Executive of Keep Britain Tidy also contributed to the piece.  She claims that the PEL120SSB SolarStreetBin™ actually reduces litter waste because the bin offers an opportunity for the public to recycle waste on the go.  She believes the SolarStreetBin™ will also reduce cigarette butt litter as smokers can drop their butts into the bin rather than dumping on the ground.

Denise Hyland of Greenwich Council explained how the SolarStreetBin™ is an absolutely smart way of doing business as the PEL120SSB is so efficient it reduces collections from seven-times a day to once-day along the High Street and the council gets an email when it needs to be collected!
