Bigbelly Helps to Reduce the Impact of Waste at Music Festival in Sydney, Australia

Posted by Bigbelly on 10/12/17 8:11 AM

This is a republication from Bigbelly International Distribution Partner, Solar Bins Australia. Find the original here.


Bigbelly is a solar-powered waste compactor that is revolutionising waste management worldwide. Once the rubbish inside a Bigbelly reaches a certain level, sensors inside trigger a compaction. This means that by the time the station is full, the total volume captured is 5 times more than that of a 120L wheelie bin! The Bigbelly even lets you know it is ready for collection via form of a text message or email, meaning collections only need to be made when a waste station is full. How’s that for intelligent waste?
