Municipality of Rethymno, the lead partner of the PLASTECO Project has just installed waste bins especially designed for the disabled. These photovoltaic bins were placed in 12 areas of the city-close to the parking spaces dedicated for people with disabilities -and are operated by the push of a button.

The capacity of each bin is 1100 liters and the whole system operation is environmentally friendly as it is carried out by a 10W/12V photovoltaic power panel. The system is only activated during use ensuring the maximum energy savings.
