NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The latest in garbage technology has come to Tennessee.

Lipscomb University in Nashville and the city of Chattanooga are testing solar-powered trash cans called BigBelly Cordless Compactors.

The sleek, green compactors that resemble a book drop box smash 180 gallons of garbage into a regular 32-gallon bag. WTVF reports it cuts down the manpower used to collect trash and empty cans, freeing workers to man other jobs and saving money.

The unit costs $3,000
