Bigbelly Smart Waste Alliance for Downtown New York

BIDs around the world implement the Bigbelly Smart Waste & Recycling Solution to better deliver on the promise to serve their communities and stay poised for success in the future. Among the most impactful ways that Bigbelly’s Smart Waste solution empowers BIDs are:

1. Engaging in innovative Placemaking to create cleaner, safer public spaces, and

2. Improving Operational Efficiency & Workforce Development.

Each BID community is unique, and they have leveraged the benefits of Smart Waste technology throughout the recent years accordingly. Adopting Bigbelly technology allows BIDs to evolve with the social, political, and economic landscape, adapting to the needs of the community at each stage.

Bigbelly Smart Waste Garment District AllianceAfter a year where operational agility has been tested, BIDs are looking ahead to a (very near) future when foot traffic will return. As exciting as the inevitable return is, BIDs must create an infrastructure that is prepared to handle increased pedestrian waste volume and ensure proactive public health & safety.

Just as Bigbelly has helped BIDs evolve in the past, the Placemaking, Operational Efficiency, and Workforce Development benefits of Smart Waste technology prepares them comprehensively for the future.


Two leaders in the national BID community speak on how a Bigbelly’s Smart Waste solution has supported Placemaking & Operational Efficiency, how their BIDs have evolved in these aspects in recent years, and how they are preparing for the future with Smart Waste technology:

 • Simon Bertrang, Executive Director of San Francisco’s Tenderloin CBD will speak to his experience with Placemaking

 • Jessica Lappin, President of the Alliance for Downtown New York will be speaking from the perspective of Operational Efficiency.

 • Representing Bigbelly are Brian Phillips, President & CEO, and Jeff Satwicz, VP of Product Strategy & Innovation
