After Chavchavadze Avenue, Tbilisi City Hall, as part of a pilot project, has installed underground garbage containers on Kipshidze Street.
Underground garbage containers are waterproof, and consist of a concrete hopper and a safety platform. The container is also equipped with a lid for pedestrians and a filling sensor, which ensures the avoidance of harmful impact on the environment and health during operation.
The locations for the installation of the containers were selected while taking into account the location of trees and other green areas in a particular area, as well as the perimeter required for the movement of special garbage removal trucks, the location of existing and future infrastructure (private and municipal transport carriageways, pedestrian and bicycle lanes, landing sites, parking lots).
