Trusted by our customers worldwide
Honestly, nobody expected that trash cans could raise customer satisfaction. Thanks to these smart solar trash cans, our customers can now focus on shopping and enjoy the pleasant department store atmosphere. We wanted to present the least amount of interference to our customers during the day. As a result of installing over 20 CleanCUBEs, we did not have to pick up garbage during the day at all. That was exactly what we were looking for.
By installing just 144 of the waste compacting CleanCUBEs, we managed to replace over 400 traditional bins. Waste collection costs have gone down by 86% and public areas are cleaner than ever. The waste collection workers find using the monitoring system to be convenient, and it allows them to provide better service much more efficiently. Everyone wins!

We offer a mounting kit that can be utilized to secure the CleanCUBE to the ground. It also comes installed with GPS so that users can monitor its location. For the parts that are susceptible to corrosion or breakdown, we use anti-theft screws and temper proof materials, such as stainless steel and polycarbonate covers.
What items need to be services and how often?
We recommend that the battery is replaced every 3-4 years. Also, it’s best to keep the solar panel clean by occasionally wiping the polycarbonate cover for maximum efficiency. The solar panel should be replaced every 15 years. Annual maintenance may include lubricating the gears and shafts.
