Terra public can
Terra with a built-in compaction system can fit waste from up to five standard bins of equal size. It is developed to keep busy or remote locations, such as city squares, tourist landmarks, university campuses, airports, public transport stations, and national parks easy to maintain and keep clean. It can be used for any type of waste – mixed, plastic, paper, metal, or glass. With a minimalistic design, yet a powerful engine, it provides the best lifetime value on the market.
Built to last
Terra’s external shell is constructed of a combination of zinc-coated and stainless steel, making it resistant to both harsh weather conditions and most vandalism attempts. In addition, the polycarbonate solar panel is securely integrated on top of the metal shell, which mounts to the concrete base and has an internal GPS locator to ensure its safeguard. A set of built-in sensors, such as noise, fire, and PHT, can also add to the longevity of your investment.
Powered by sustainable and clean solar energy, Terra never gets tired. It contains a built-in waste compactor system with a 3000 N compaction force that can increase the capacity of the 120 L bin fivefold, depending on the type of waste. Operators can remotely monitor its fill levels and plan collection routes accordingly, leading to more effective resource management and lower operational costs.
The modular and simple design of the Terra public can allows much-needed flexibility to add features that are important to unique community needs. Most components can be easily serviced, replaced, and upgraded even after the installation.
Easy to operate
Terra improves the speed and efficiency of waste collection. Remote access control through RFID cards eliminates the need for physical keys, while optimized route planning on the Solos platform saves time. Trash bins without plastic bags allow for faster truck loading. Finally, end-users have a hands-free waste disposal experience with a set of sensors that automatically open the Terra doors, or manually using a foot pedal.
With its inconspicuous and simple design, Terra blends into any environment. A powerful technology combined with an elegant exterior elevates the appearance of public spaces.
