Kudos to Orinda, California for adopting and embracing smarter waste management with the Bigbelly system! We are thrilled to see this community's success in transforming was management operations in their parks and downtown area. Read on for an article published on Lamorinda Weekly after a recent City Council meeting:
Cast off the MS Stena Danica, a ferry operated by Stena Line between Gothenburg, Sweden and Fredrikshavn, Denmark. This vessel from one of the largest ferry operators in the world, Stena Line, which offers numerous routes across Europe. Passengers and crew on this ferry will now find Bigbelly's smart waste system on deck while sailing in the North Sea, each solar-powered waste compactors soaking up the plentiful sun. Bigbelly International Distribution Partner for Sweden and Denmark, EWF Eco, has worked closely with the ferry line to deliver custom branded high capacity solar-powered units on the deck of the MS Stena Danica.
Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU)'s urban campus in Tallahassee, Florida is modernizing waste management with the Bigbelly smart waste system. Florida A&M deployed a fleet of double stations to capture both trash and recycling at every bin location. All stations are connected into the platform allowing Facilities crew members can access their collection list anytime in the CLEAN web software or mobile app.
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.
Sixty recently installed trash and recycling receptacles that look and act smart will change how Facilities Management talks trash, as well as how the unit manages waste on campus. The receptacles are high-tech, solar enabled, connected trash and recycling receptacles that can communicate directly with Facilities Management. Designed with several sustainable features in mind, including a solar-powered smart communication system that alerts Facilities Management when its’s full, these are no ordinary receptacles.
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!

We're excited to welcome Colorado State University as one of the latest campuses to deploy the Bigbelly smart waste and recycling system! These smart units, located up and down the Spine, capture both landfill and recycling waste streams at each location. All units in the fleet call into Bigbelly's CLEAN software to notify campus collectors when they are each full and ready to be collected.
Kudos to this forward-thinking institution for their adoption of smarter waste management practices - we can't wait to see CSU's success with the system! Read on for a article published in the university's local news publication - The Rocky Mountain Collegian - highlighting their smart new program:
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.
