Douglas bins set for digital upgrade

Tue, 20 Aug 2013

Rubbish bins in Douglas are getting a digital upgrade as the town’s council re-focuses its services.

Microchips are being installed in the 12,000 litter bins as well as bin wagons.

Council leader David Christian says this will help provide better management information and help to target manpower in certain areas.

The scheme will cost Douglas Borough Council around £40,000.

There will also be 25 new solar-powered 'big belly bins' installed which have up to eight times more capacity than ordinary bins.
