The extended Bigbelly team - our fantastic international distributors - took to the show floor at Smart City Expo and World Congress 2018 earlier this month in Barcelona!
Bigbelly's Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) Division was thrilled to share the stage among industry leaders from T-Mobile and Nokia at last month's Smart Cities Connect Fall Conference and Expo in Tampa, FL. This industry leading event brought thought-provoking IoT, Telecom, and Smart City movers and shakers together to discuss the trends and trajectory of everything related to Smart Cities.
Sixty recently installed trash and recycling receptacles that look and act smart will change how Facilities Management talks trash, as well as how the unit manages waste on campus. The receptacles are high-tech, solar enabled, connected trash and recycling receptacles that can communicate directly with Facilities Management. Designed with several sustainable features in mind, including a solar-powered smart communication system that alerts Facilities Management when its’s full, these are no ordinary receptacles.
The sight of overfilled trash bins in uptown and downtown may be a thing of the past now that 10 brand-new “smart” refuse and recycling canisters have been installed by the city of Port Townsend Public Works Department.
“We are excited about this solution downtown after struggling for several years with keeping trash cans emptied,” Greg Lanning, Public Works director, told The Leader Oct. 19. “Along with other recent improvements to Water Street, such as new sidewalks, trees, rain gardens and the plaza at Tyler Street, having a solution for trash and recycling enhances the downtown experience.”
STRATFORD, CT – Beginning this week, the Town of Stratford will begin deploying a number of Bigbelly solar compacting trash and recycle containers throughout the town. Stratford Mayor Laura R. Hoydick said that obtaining these new containers was the result of work by the Stratford Green Task Force, and will keep Stratford streets, parks and recreational areas cleaner while saving the town money in the long-run.
