WILSON, NC — Trash collection in historic downtown Wilson has gotten an upgrade thanks to smart technology, and officials are hoping to eventually roll out the Bigbelly brand garbage and recycling bins elsewhere in the city.
[New] high-tech bins designed to crush rubbish and notify the council when they need emptying have been installed along Deal seafront. Dover District Council (DDC) has [deployed] the larger capacity waste containers as part of work to keep the town and beaches clean and tidy.
The extended Bigbelly team - our fantastic international distributors - took to the show floor at Smart City Expo and World Congress 2018 earlier this month in Barcelona!
Bigbelly's Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) Division was thrilled to share the stage among industry leaders from T-Mobile and Nokia at last month's Smart Cities Connect Fall Conference and Expo in Tampa, FL. This industry leading event brought thought-provoking IoT, Telecom, and Smart City movers and shakers together to discuss the trends and trajectory of everything related to Smart Cities.
The sight of overfilled trash bins in uptown and downtown may be a thing of the past now that 10 brand-new “smart” refuse and recycling canisters have been installed by the city of Port Townsend Public Works Department.
“We are excited about this solution downtown after struggling for several years with keeping trash cans emptied,” Greg Lanning, Public Works director, told The Leader Oct. 19. “Along with other recent improvements to Water Street, such as new sidewalks, trees, rain gardens and the plaza at Tyler Street, having a solution for trash and recycling enhances the downtown experience.”
STRATFORD, CT – Beginning this week, the Town of Stratford will begin deploying a number of Bigbelly solar compacting trash and recycle containers throughout the town. Stratford Mayor Laura R. Hoydick said that obtaining these new containers was the result of work by the Stratford Green Task Force, and will keep Stratford streets, parks and recreational areas cleaner while saving the town money in the long-run.
Congratulations to the City of Summit, New Jersey for their adoption of the Bigbelly smart waste and recycling system! We're excited to see this community create cleaner public spaces by keeping trash and recycling contained within their High Capacity compacting units. This smart system reports into their DPW department when stations are full and ready to be collected. We can't wait to see Summit's success with the system!

Congratulations to the Fix-It Team and the Tenderloin neighborhood in downtown San Francisco, California for their deployment of the Bigbelly smart waste system! We're excited to see this community embracing the Bigbelly system to make an impact on cleanliness in their community. Kudos!
OCTOBER 15 / BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- The Township of Bloomfield is investing in smart-technology compacting waste bins that have been set up at five locations throughout town. These waste bins have built-in compactors that utilize solar power, and are locked so no rodents or other animals can get in.
The bins are provided by Bigbelly Solutions, Inc., a Massachusetts-based company that has sold compacting bins in 54 countries and recently installed 50 bins in Montclair. The five cans in Bloomfield have been programmed to auto-generate email and online notifications to the Department of Public Works when each needs to be emptied.
