Sixty recently installed trash and recycling receptacles that look and act smart will change how Facilities Management talks trash, as well as how the unit manages waste on campus. The receptacles are high-tech, solar enabled, connected trash and recycling receptacles that can communicate directly with Facilities Management. Designed with several sustainable features in mind, including a solar-powered smart communication system that alerts Facilities Management when its’s full, these are no ordinary receptacles.
