From small towns, to BIDs, to major metropolitan areas, Bigbelly is transforming communities with configurable solutions that meet their unique needs.

Cleaner Spaces

By eliminating windblown litter and waste overflows, we’re creating cleaner, more beautiful streets and public spaces.

Better Communities

Bigbelly’s customizable graphic wraps and message panels promote community messaging, resulting in more informed and engaged communities

Reduced Collections

Our CLEAN connected Smart and Smart Max bins communicate ready-to-collect status, and our Smart Max compactors hold 5x the capacity. Combined, smarts and added capacity can reduce collections by over 80%.

Reduced Rats & Pests

Bigbelly’s fully enclosed bins eliminate a major food source for rats and other pests, reducing their population where Bigbelly is deployed.

Public Space recycling

Consistent and uniform recycling is key for communities to achieve their zero-waste and sustainability goals, creating a better world for everyone.

Reduced GHG Emissions

With fewer collections, municipalities can reduce fuel consumption and GHG emissions by up to 70%.

Products Used

Geographically spread-out deployments are best served by deployments that consist mostly of Bigbelly Smart & Smart Max bins, and some Bigbelly Element bins.

The “smarts” provides insights into waste volumes, when to collect, minimize overflows, maintenance needs and will keep your waste operation running in tip-top shape.

Case Study

The City of Philadelphia

The Challenge

The City of Philadelphia faced the challenge of keeping busy commercial corridors clean and litter free. The city center, with its millions of residents, professionals, and tourists, generated a significant amount of waste, causing traditional wire baskets to fill up quickly and overflow. The Sanitation team had to collect wire baskets 17 times per week across three shifts, resulting in over 1.5 million collections annually and incurring substantial operating costs.

The Solution

Philadelphia quickly became the national leader in adopting smart waste and recycling. The city’s Sanitation department significantly decreased collection frequency from 17 times to just 3 times per week, requiring only one crew shift daily instead of three. This resulted in substantial cost savings, and cleaner streets that are easier to maintain.
