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.
Bigbelly’s Distribution Partner in Chile, Green Cargo, has worked closely with the city to transform this iconic park. Green Cargo shared a reflection of their experience:
Starting three years ago, every day after work, we were nostalgic when reaching the top of Parque Metropolitano. There we found the gift of silence – a silence that positively transformed this urban public space forever.
After nearly three years in Chile, Parque Metropolitano was the first in Latin America to successfully implement this world class Bigbelly smart waste system technology. We’re proud to be among the numerous deployments located across the main cities and 50 countries around the world.
