San Francisco is considering some new public trash cans – but it won’t be a cheap project.
The San Francisco Department of Public Works could spend about $20,000 apiece for 15 prototype trash cans, according to recent reports.
The article goes on to state the following:
However, once the city decides on what can to buy, the cost per unit will be much lower, KTVU reported earlier this week.
According to KTVU, the trash cans are a part of a $537,000 pilot program that the city is considering to replace 3,000 public trash cans.
The station reported that the city wants to prevent vandalism and tampering, while also providing recycling options. The prototypes can also alert the city when they need to be emptied.
“San Francisco is a beautiful city and keeping it clean can be a challenge,” Acting Public Works Director Alaric Degrafinried said in a statement. “Finding the right public trash can to serve our needs at a reasonable cost has driven this design process.”
KTVU reported that once the city picks a trash can the cost will be lower at around $3,000 and $4,000 a piece.
SF Public Works tweeted Thursday, “Hey #SF – keep an eye out for these three new public trash can prototype designs throughout the City later this year!”
