Solar-Bin / Food Waste Bin


Solar-Bin is a public food waste bin which is operated by solar power.
It grinds food waste into power so that it reduces odor and the shipping cost.
Taking advantage of the fact that public bins are placed outside under the sun, it is an eco-friendly product as it uses the electrical energy powered by the sun-light.
It has lightings on the front part which indicates its operation and the amount of electricity charged. It also works as a mood light at night.
