SAVE SOME CASH WITH YOUR TRASH

Inhabitat - Philadelphia's new landfill-crunching compacting bins are entirely powered by the sun and are able to accept close to eight times as much waste as a regular trash can. They are predicted to save the city close to $12 million over the next ten years.

I am a gardener at University of California, bur we also empty trash cans and the lifting is injuring the workers, shoulders, back injuries, etc.

Now, increase the weight by 8X and you’ll need another method than the one person lift.
