Lampposts Powered by Trash

From designer Haneum Lee comes a concept that would power street lights from the energy generated by the trash collected from its base. The lamppost composts the trash and uses the methane byproduct as a fuel to power the lamps. I'm not sure how much trash is needed to power a full side street lamp or if today mostly plastic and paper garbage are well suited for composting but its a novel idea.
