Pest and Rat Abatement

Communities around the world are using Bigbelly to help combat rats and other pests in their public spaces by over 40% in streets and 90% in parks. Find out how Bigbelly can help make your space all together better.

Complete Containment

Once waste goes in, it can’t come out. A fully enclosed bin means no visible waste and no access for unwanted pests, eliminating their food source and keeping your space safer.

Less Litter

Complete waste containment eliminates pest strewn litter, keeping streets, parks, and venues clean.

Public Health

By reducing the population, public spaces and venues protect residents and visitors from disease-carrying rodents and the associated health risks.

Products Used

Bigbelly’s fully-enclosed bin design is key for keeping rats and pests out of waste, cutting off pests from an available food source. All five Bigbelly products equipped with either a Hopper or Chute disposal interface are proven to reduce the presence of rats and pests in the areas where they are deployed.

Case Study

New York City

The Challenge

In parks throughout New York City, open bins provided a food source for rats, contributed to waste overflows and windblown litter and required frequent collection.

The Solution

By deploying 670 Bigbelly bins, we helped New York City reduce rats in streets and parks and create cleaner, healthier, and more inviting public spaces.
