Hayley checks out a new solar bin

There's nothing that ruins a day out in the park like overflowing bins and rubbish everywhere!

Well maybe these new bins are the answer - they hold EIGHT times as much as ordinary ones and are powered by the sun.

When they're full, they alert the rubbish collectors on a special website so they can be cleared out.

There are 1000 of these futuristic bins around Britain at the moment, but they could be on every street sometime soon.
