Bigbelly is the world leading smart waste and recycling solution for communities, campuses, and retailers. Our smart bins notify collection crews when they are ready for pick-up, and measure then report on recycling diversion. Bigbelly’s smart, sustainable solution provides a uniform recycling program and offers distinctive, standardized recycling education at the point of disposal… a win-win!
We’re excited to announce our partnership with Recycling Across America – the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization on a mission to implement a standardized label solution to make it easy for society to recycling right. Let’s recycle right! Our partnership delivers RAA’s standardized labels custom-sized for Bigbelly’s smart waste & recycling stations.
Recycle Across America has created the world’s first and only society-wide standardized labels for bins to make it easy for people to recycle right wherever they are, and therefore help recycling and closed-loop manufacturing begin to thrive. The standardized labels are proven to increase recycling levels 50-100% and dramatically decrease the amount of contamination (aka garbage) thrown in recycling bins; therefore, improving the financial viability of recycling.
We’ve worked with Recycle Across America to create their standardized labels specifically sized for Bigbelly units – compatible with both high capacity (HC) and standard capacity (SC) models. Standardized labels further enhance the impact of Bigbelly’s uniform system that measures and reports on recycling diversion while reducing communities’ overall environmental footprint.
“Bigbelly is proud to partner with RAA to help spread the adoption of standardized recycling labels, making it easy for our customers to join the movement. Longstanding partnerships with cities, colleges, and facilities that use Bigbelly for their standard public space bins give us a unique opportunity to extend RAA’s mission. Standardized labels further enhance the impact of Bigbelly’s uniform system that measures and reports on recycling diversion while reducing communities’ overall environmental footprint.” – Brian Phillips, CEO of Bigbelly
The Bigbelly-sized labels for every stream sorting need measure 11″ x 17″ and are stickers for the front doors. RAA has also created 18″ x 30″ message panel inserts (for the sides of the bins) with artwork from their celebrity ‘Let’s Recycling Right!’ campaign. Stickers and message panel inserts can be purchased directly through RAA’s web store: www.recycleacrossamerica.org/bigbelly-bins →
We’re excited to be one of seven bin manufacturers that are joining RAA on their mission to implement a society-wide standardized labels solution to make it easy for people everywhere to recycle right, and to help our customers’ recycling programs thrive. Learn more on the RAA website, here.
