Post office gets a BigBelly

A green-tech BigBelly Solar Trash Compactor was installed Friday in front of La Jolla Post Office at 1140 Wall St. Pared with a unit collecting recyclable bottles and cans, the BigBelly is the second to be installed in La Jolla — the first is in the Shores. The distributor claims the solar-powered units can accommodate 200 gallons of trash, compared with 45 gallons for traditional cans.
