Objectives of the trial:

In addition to the general benefits of introducing smart bins across the borough, we are looking for this trial on Woodcote Road to:

  • Enable us to learn more about how bins in the Woodcote Road area are being used.

  • Target resources to where they are needed most.

  • Reduce street clutter and improve the street scene on Woodcote Road.

  • Ensure litter bins do not overflow, improving street cleanliness.

  • Reduce vehicle movements in the area, cutting pollution and lowering our carbon emissions. 

  • Use compacting bins to reduce the number of collections made.
