New Zealand Explores Waste and Recycling Innovation

Posted by Jenna McGrail on 2/26/16 5:03 PM

From the Wild West to the White Sandy Beaches of the East, the Bigbelly System has began to change public waste in the North Island of New Zealand.

Creating a more aesthetically pleasing area for the locals and holiday visitors, the bins have eliminated overflows and have reduced rubbish volumes found outside of the bins. With over 100 bins deployed in the past three months into campgrounds, large facilities such as the Auckland airport, parks and reserves within rural coastal towns by the end of last year, people are beginning to grasp the benefits and results that the Bigbelly system can create.
