These street lights feed on trash for power

From designer Haneum Lee comes a concept that could see streets lit while keeping trash off of them, too. At the base of every street light is a wastebasket that turns what it can use into compost, while using methane gas to generate the power needed to keep the lights on.

It’s an interesting thought, to be sure — one that may not work so well in suburban or rural areas. It could do wonders in a city such as New York City, though, where there are full trash cans on every corner. Check out more in the gallery below.
