Project for Underground Garbage Containers
For a cleaner and healthier Büyükçekmece, the central Büyükçekmece and Mimarsinan areas were elected as pilot neighborhoods in 2012 and 100 underground garbage containers were placed in these regions. This system involves an underground container instead of a regular, galvanized metal garbage container. Since the temperature underground is lower than the temperature of the surface and no sunlight reaches the underground, domestic waste does not emit any smells and does not reach the temperature sufficient to produce bacteria. Since these new containers are not made of metal, they do not cause noise during garbage collection. 1 underground garbage container can hold garbage as much as 6 galvanized metal containers.,
