Baltimore City has just agreed to spend $8.9 million on high-tech garbage receptacles. Watch out, Baltimore: Your trash experience is about to leap into the 21st-century.
The new trash cans will be a sturdier, upgraded model. This is the city’s latest attempt to provide trash cans that are sturdy enough to withstand city life (and keep rats out). But there’s also the problem of trash can theft, which is where the RFID tracking device comes in. Other cities have used similarly techy trash cans–in some cities, RFID chips are used to monitor whether citizens are recycling or not.
The trash cans will be provided at no cost to Baltimore residents.
