Street Lamp



City Context is a combination of a solar-powered street light and a trash bin. The main goal of this design is to bring a bright and clean environment in big city. It’s not easy to maintain a clean environment especially in a big city, thus, making public waste containers are very essential infrastructures.
This design embeds a trash bin within the street light to help pedestrians easily find the bin by the light. It encourages people not to litter since they can easily find the trash bin for every 10 meters along the road. Each bin is marked with different colors and icons to label the waste type.
