Colleges and universities embrace smart waste management on campus to reap the benefits of increased beautification and campus cleanliness to productivity gains and resource reallocation.

One of the latest communities to embrace the Bigbelly smart waste system is the popular mountain town of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Known as the gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the family-friendly resort community attracts many visitors to take in the views and vistas.
