A smarter Gotland benefits all!
Traditional bins can create uncertainty that results in littering and a need for a costly response. In central Visby on Gotland traditional bins have been replaced and supplemented with the smart bin Bigbelly. There are now 31 units, which have over six months collected 450 000 litres of rubbish in the public environment in an efficient manner.
The Bigbelly platform streamlines the handling of rubbish and notifies staff via SMS, app or email when and where emptying is needed. Bigbelly's photovoltaic bins capture and store solar energy to power the built-in compactor all year round that gives space for more rubbish. With Bigbelly, daily collections can normally become weekly collections.
