One of the latest municipalities to change their space with the Bigbelly system is the Township of Montclair in Essex County, New Jersey. This 40,000 resident township is located about 20 miles northwest of New York City, well-know to be home to baseball legend Yogi Berra, and home to Montclair State University.
Town leadership deployed the Bigbelly system to better manage public space waste in the Montclair Center area, the townships's main commercial zone. In 2015, Montclair Center won the Great American Main Street Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation which recognizes "communities exemplyfing the use of the Main Street Approach to revitalization of their traditional downtowns and/or neighborhood business districts."
