Sarajevo is beggining its transformation into the smart city. Along with smart traffic, smart lighting, and smart energy, smart waste is an integral part of any smart city.
Several smart waste bins will be installed in the Old Town of Sarajevo. They help the environment by decreasing traffic of waste trucks which at the end results in less air pollution in the city of Sarajevo. The bins are solar-powered trash compactors which can hold up to 8 times more waste compared to non-compacting bins, reducing colllection frequency by up to 80%.
They allow disposal of bigger rubbish quantities with lower frequency of collections and prevent inefficent collections.
