Västerås, Sweden – Ever wonder what a Bigbelly is thinking? How “smart” are these street-side Smart Waste monsters? Now Sweden can talk some serious trash with a Bigbelly right in their neighborhood! Feed a Bigbelly its favorite lunch, and it’ll share a fun fact about Sustainability.
Launched in Västerås just this past month, the new initiative seeks to engage the public around sustainability, and encourage passers-by to literally ‘pitch in’. These fun & playful Bigbellies share 100 different audio messages with facts about sustainability, wildlife, nature, and health. Each time community members throw trash into the waste bin, the Bigbellies are happy to share their thoughts.
The new talking Bigbelly Smart Waste stations are part of a collaborative initiative by Västerås City for a safer, cleaner, more sustainable community. The goal is to reduce littering by making it fun to throw away debris.
“The execution corresponds to the city’s three strategic development areas; It is an idea that works with curiosity and learning to increase comfort and contribute to an ecologically sustainable city,” says Anna Thunell, Chairman of the Technical Board, City of Västerås.
