Video / Here is how Tirana will be without garbage bins and how they will work
On Environment Day, Tirana inaugurated, starting with several roads, the underground waste project.
Where are they located?
The first two underground containers for differentiated waste collection were placed in "Sulejman Pasha" square.
The others will be initially located in the center of Tirana, as well as in the most frequented areas of the city. To be extended later to the whole of Tirana.
How do they work?
The underground containers, as in the video, are enough to be pressed with the feet, to open the lid where the kings will then be thrown. All waste is deposited in the underground container, which is then emptied by cleaning workers.
New metal containers
New containers will also be placed in some areas of Tirana. Their feature is that they will be metal, to be more resistant than plastics and waste disposal will be differentiated. The latter will function as mailboxes, where waste to be dumped in the designated space and the lid will be hermetically sealed.
Thus not only will they be more aesthetic, but they will also avoid unpleasant odor.
Present at the inauguration of the new bins were the Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj accompanied by Deputy. the Italian ambassador in Tirana, Luigi Mattirolo, and the administrator of "Eco Tirana", Diego Testi.
