Rob Arthur Installs Solar Compactor

Installing Solar Trash Compactors

In 2009, we created a public, private, non-profit partnership with BigBelly Solar and the Metropolitan Improvement District to install dozens of solar powered trash compactors throughout downtown Seattle.


The compactors reduce greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the number of pick up sanitation trucks must make to pick up trash. BigBelly Solar has won numerous awards and is recognized as a C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group best practice.
