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.
