Waste Management’s innovative Solar-Powered Trash Compactor helps keep public spaces clean and can reduce trash collections by up to 80%.

Bigbelly was founded in 2003 with the goal of transforming one of the least efficient and resource-intensive industries: waste collection. Cities were either collecting too often and wasting fuel and labor while emitting excess CO2, or alternatively, they were not able to keep up with the demands and overflowing trash cans that created litter, health, and safety issues.

In the following years, we evolved to offer a unique and complete solution by leveraging renewable solar energyand information technology. Bigbelly is a Smart Waste Management, Smart City, and Internet of  (IoT) Things  industry leader and is recognized as a C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group best practice. Industry knowledge & longevity in the market provides us with unparalleled insights backed by extensive data, analytics, and customer successes.

Powered by the sun, our eco-friendly compactors work in every kind of weather — snow, rain or shine. These remarkable machines are available with or without companion recycling kiosks and can be covered with the exterior design of your choice. By compressing its contents, the unit gains capacity, so it doesn’t have to be emptied as often. Fewer collections mean cost-savings for labor, fuel and maintenance and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
