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. After surveying the local people and gathering their feedback on the new technology, everyone has been able to see the proven benefits of the smart Bigbelly system.
