In partnership with the City of Winnipeg, Bigbelly's solar-powered trash compacting system was installed by Transcona BIZ in their downtown area in April. Read on for the story as reported in the Winnipeg Free Press:
In most communities, demonstrated commitment to sustainability is not limited to a singular Earth Day but rather is engrained in the fiber of the city, county, or campus - consider it Earth Day Every Day. There are programs, ordinances, and missions designed to reduce, reuse, and recycle; to efficiently capture and collect trash; all while diverting as much waste as possible from landfills as a pledge to improve the lives of constituents and the environment for generations to come.
We celebrate Earth Day Every Day by recognizing our customers who are making a difference in sustainability and environmental protection through their use of Bigbelly's smart waste management solution. We are excited to announce the Top 25 Highest Recycling & Compost Diversion Ratios from Smart City Deployments. Congratulations to each and every one of these cities, towns, parks and transit systems, business improvement districts, other public spaces for their commitment to recycling and sustainability!
The City of Winnipeg's Transcona Business Improvement Zone (BIZ) is one of the latest communities in Canada and around the world to embrace the Bigbelly smart waste and recycling system. Paired perfectly with a community-focused clean up announcement, Transcona BIZ announced their use of the Bigbelly system to ensure that waste stays in its place, reduces area litter, and increases productivity related to waste and recycling collections. Welcome, Winnipeg's Transcona BIZ!
“I have seen these bins at work on Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, and in downtown Penticton, B.C., and in both places the streets were pristine,” said Alex Morrison, Executive Director of the Transcona BIZ, thrilled to have this high-tech waste management system in Transcona. “They are also in use in Kenora, so we know they work in our climate. We are all very excited to have the first one in Manitoba here in downtown Transcona!”

The City of Spokane joins the ranks of communities leveraging the Bigbelly smart waste and recycling system to manage their public space waste.

The recent snow storms that have created a winter wonderland among streetscapes and campuses from New England to the Midwest to Europe may have you wondering... Does the Bigbelly station still work when it is covered in snow? The answer is YES!
Despite being chilled, it is still accepting waste, sensing how full it is, running compactions, and communicating into cloud-based CLEAN.
Bigbelly’s patented power management technology enables stations to consume less than 3Wh of energy per day and the battery has more than enough energy stored to support this consumption despite any snow, sleet, rain, clouds, shadows, etc.
