The Smart Waste & Recycling Solution

Waste & Recycling Stations

A Solution for Every Corner

The Bigbelly smart waste and recycling system is comprised of modular components that enable you to deploy waste, recycling, and even compost stations that meet the needs of each station locations. At the core of your Bigbelly system is the CLEAN Management Console which delivers actionable data from your customized configuration of Bigbelly and Smartbelly stations. Each station provides both real-time and historical collection data that can be accessed via the cloud-based CLEAN.

Figuring out whether or not a particular trash can needs to be emptied has historically been a guessing game… Do you over collect to ensure there are no overflows? Or, do you roll the dice and hope that it can make it another day? This age-old conundrum is removed from your operations with a Bigbelly system deployment. The world has come a long way in the modernization of technology and core services such as waste management now benefits from these advances.

They reduce sidewalk litter, and the recycling containers contribute to the sustainability of our community. And they look good! The simple lines create a clean look that fits in well with Rosslyn’s cityscape.

We empower our customers to operate a smarter, more efficiency, cost-effective, and connected waste management fleet.
