A smarter Gotland benefits all!
Traditional recycle bins can provide uncertainty and unignorance that results in littering and costly action. In central Visby on Gotland you have now replaced traditional recycle bins and expanded with the smart paper baskets Bigbelly. There are now 31 units, which have over 6 months collected 450 000 litres of debris in the public environment in an efficient manner.
The Bigbelly platform streamlines the handling of junk and notifies staff via SMS, app or email when and where emptying should occur. Bigbellys Photovoltaic recycle bins capture and store solar energy to power the built-in compactor all year round that gives space for more debris. Usually, Bigbelly reduces daily flushments to weekly flushments.
