Birds disappeared from the cityscape and the streets were cleaner and demanded less maintenance. Sound modules were also installed in the Bigbelly bins, which are activated during use to increase interaction with visitors.
Uppsala chose to invest in the solar-powered refuse handling system Bigbelly with the aim of improving the local environment through fewer collections and cleaner public spaces. Since the introduction of the system, the amount of rubbish visible in the main park and surrounding larger parks has fallen by 20 percent.
The Bigbelly units save time, which can instead be used to collect rubbish in the streets. During the winter, Kolding Municipality tested the bins in central areas and the results have been positive. The test reduced the number of collections by 90 percent.
