Campuses around the world are embracing a transformation of public spaces, service delivery, and quality of life for their students, staff, and visitors. Bigbelly’s solutions empower campuses, from large cities to rural environments, to modernize a core campus service while providing a multi-purpose platform to deploy other technologies and applications.
“The implementation of the Bigbelly system not only will make the campus cleaner and more efficient, but it will also affirm the University’s strong commitment to sustainability.”
“The reduction in overflow and incidental litter far exceeded our expectations–and the grounds crew’s–expectations.”
“The University has clear environmental goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase recycling and improve the landscape quality and environment of the campus and find a way to measure the results.”
“The new bins are expected to increase recycling rates due to the simplicity of a one-bin system and more clearly labeled containers”
“CLEAN can help to identify trends in waste generation, compare waste volume between waste streams in an area, micro-manage the system in particular locations to meet the needs of the area, and to manage the Bigbelly system.”
“I’ve always said that no one compliments the empty trash can; however an overflow is inexcusable. With Bigbelly and the CLEAN management software, the trash reports itself. In our line of services, this feature is invaluable.”
With [the Bigbelly system’s] ability to compact and send alert messages, we’ve been able to go from spending 30 hours a week to spending less than three hours a week in collection. These stations have been well received by our patrons and have really improved the aesthetics of our historical campus, specifically North Campus.

Leverage Core Infrastructure to Deliver Additional Applications & Technologies
Connect is a platform deployed in the public right-of-way that delivers much more than smart waste and recycling. In addition to modernizing a core campus service, it is optimal for hosting additional technologies. It is easy to access and can hide technology in plain sight.
Campuses can take advantage of required public waste infrastructure as a holding place for other technology and applications such as Wi-Fi Hotspots, location-based beacon networks, and environmental sensors. Multi-purposing the smart waste system eases logistics and further enhances the campus with improved services.
