Santiago, Chile's iconic Parque Metropolitano battled a major problem with wasps year after year. These pests swarmed the Bellavista Terrace due to the traditional, open-top waste bins used in the area. Since the implementation of Bigbelly's smart waste technology in Parque Metropolitano, the wasps have taken to less populated, more floral areas of the park. Bigbelly's enclosed system design keeps the Terrace visitors' waste contained and ensures that there is no wasp access to the trash.

Darlington Borough Council has achieved a 98% efficiency rating for the emptying of units only when at least 80% full as opposed to emptying bins irrespective of fill level since introducing 10 Bigbelly units.
Worcester’s growing population of greedy gulls is being brought into line following Worcester City Council’s decision to trial 10 Bigbelly smart waste units’ ability to prevent seagull scavenging and increase litter capacity in city centre locations throughout the town.
Solar Compacting Bins Fit More Waste; Only Need Collecting When FulL
Overflowing bins, vermin risks and shrinking resources are what prompted Derbyshire Dales Council to replace 115 litterbins with only 42 Bigbelly units - a decision that has since reduced unnecessary bin empties by up to 95% within some parts of the local authority.
When you think about garbage bins locations in public spaces, certain areas immediately come to mind... Places such as sidewalks, plazas and squares, parks and picnic areas, trails and transit stops. These are all true across the globe! Waste bins are a key city infrastructure that have the opportunity to significantly enhance an environment and streetscape when a colorful, fun and smart solution is in place.
The municipality of Alingsås, Sweden announced the installation of solar-powered and self-communicating smart bins. The units compress waste as it is thrown away, and notify when they are getting full. This way, the municipality will save on the number of collections and the barrels can be placed where they are most needed.
Smart waste management is not only for use in municipalities and universities. Bigbelly's smart waste system is deployed in private sector spaces - from grocery stores to office parks - to streamline productivity, reduce environmental footprint of operations, and keep their spaces clean and green. These venues use Bigbelly to automate much of the work needed to manage the all-too-frequent task of trash and recycling collection.
