Makkah municipality is using environment-friendly solar garbage bins in Makkah and the Holy Sites during the entire Haj season.

The municipality, according to the director of the department of cleanliness Mohammed Bin Abdul Rahman Al-Morqi, has distributed as many as 1,150 such garbage bins in the Holy Sites including nine operated by solar energy, which were distributed mainly around the Jamarat area.

He said the capacity of each bin is about 14 cubic meters. “The solar boxes will greatly develop the process of cleanliness and will help store the garbage in view of the limited space and time,” he said. Al-Morqi also said the boxes are using the most modern communication systems through satellites and can be operated from a distance.
