10 new units have been added across Sharjah, which is phase 1 of the installation plan that will last for a month, the aim it to have over 100 bins installed around Sharjah and the UAE.
Created by a company named BigBelly, an Australian brand that has also added WiFi bins to the streets of London, have created the bins to have WiFi, powered by solar panels, and smart technology that notifies the Bee'ah control room when the bin is full.
