A trash compactor designed for public use is powered by a photovoltaic cell array. This allows the trash compactor to be placed in locations where no power is available, but with frequent traffic. The compaction feature allows the unit to be emptied less often than a typical trash container. The trash compactor can include a storage system to store power for compaction cycles. A removable bin allows easy removal of the compacted trash. The Solar-Powered Waste Management Bin is microcontroller based project that proposes a great improvement of a simple trash can which emphasizes the use of solar energy. The concept of this project is all about Green Engineering in which the design, commercialization and use of processes and products are feasible and economical while minimizing the risk to human health and the environment. In order to achieve the proposed project, RTC will be used.
