The Droitwich based Egbert Taylor Group, which includes prominent brands Taylor and Sellers, has united with Bigbelly Inc, the architect of the world’s leading smart waste and recycling system, in a strategic partnership. The move combines Egbert Taylor Group’s heritage with Bigbelly’s approach to innovation in public space waste systems.
The move, which will see the Bigbelly UK sales and operations teams transfer across to the Egbert Taylor Group, will drive growth for both brands. The strength of both companies will provide a platform on which they can deliver unprecedented opportunities to the UK waste industry.
Bigbelly’s innovative approach to waste collection will accelerate the Egbert Taylor Group’s expansion programme, whilst Bigbelly will benefit from immediate access to the Egbert Taylor Group’s UK wide distribution network and its established client base.
Brendan Murphy, CEO of the Egbert Taylor Group, comments: “In today’s market, strategic partnerships represent an essential route to growth and development. Through our partnership with Bigbelly we are combining tradition and heritage with technology in order to provide customers with a comprehensive, innovative and wide-reaching solutions portfolio.”
Jack Kutner, CEO of Bigbelly adds: “By coupling the strong Bigbelly customer base in the UK with the infrastructure and expertise of Egbert Taylor Group, together we can provide the framework necessary for Bigbelly to continue with the rapid increase in market share in the UK.”
Bigbelly’s smart waste and recycling system, which has been widely referred to as the ‘world’s most hi-tech bin’, gathers, consolidates and analyses data from its smart collection stations. It provides real-time fleet status, alerts and reports that help optimise operations while ensuring total waste containment. This fully integrated system delivers a concise, up-to-the-minute view of the entire waste and recycling footprint, helping to beautify space, streamline operations and contain costs.
The system is comprised of tightly integrated software and hardware components. The CLEAN Management Console is the centrepiece of the Bigbelly system. This easy to use web-based dashboard provides immediate access to operational status, fullness levels and collection frequency in order to ensure maximum efficiency.
The CLEAN Mobile App enables customers to manage its fleet from any mobile device. This app provides just-in-time updates and alerts from the waste and recycling stations including notifications to the collection team on stations that need immediate service.
The waste and recycling stations are the smart, solar-powered, street-tough hardware
component of the Bigbelly system. The unique station compaction technology captures eight times more waste and recycling than traditional bins. Compaction, coupled with cloud connection, dramatically decreases collection frequency and enables customers to maintain its fleet with real-time updates.
