I am pleased to be sponsoring a trial of ‘big belly’ bins in Dedworth and Central Windsor.
The bins hold more waste than conventional street bins. They have a solar panel that compacts rubbish so the bin needs to be emptied less often and the time saved can be used on litter patrols or more street cleaning. A sensor inside the bin notifies Royal Borough staff that it needs to be emptied.
The trial has been arranged at no cost to borough taxpayers thanks to Egbert Taylor who distribute these bins. It will let RBWM officers see how the bins deal with litter in some of the busiest areas of Windsor.
I’d welcome any thoughts from residents and business owners too.
