Why did Solon go to Automated?
This system offers a more convenient way for you to set out your rubbish. It is a more efficient and cost effective method to collect waste and a better way to provide service to the community. Automated rubbish collection will reduce the number of employees needed to collect rubbish. This will free up Service Department personnel to perform other important city services. It will also reduce injuries to employees from manually picking up rubbish. Automated rubbish collection is a win, win situation for everyone!
