Fill Levels & Compaction

Bigbelly is an innovative platform with over 50,000 existing devices in 54 countries that communicate and create a sustainable management of debris in the public space without connection to the power grid. The units report their status and filling level directly to those responsible for more efficient route planning.

Bigbelly High Capacity has 5-8 times more capacity than a traditional trash can and provides space for 570 liters of uncompressed debris of the same size without allowing pests to access the contents. The platform provides added value for both the business, the environment and the visitors. 

We can also see a drastic reduction in picking cleaning in the parks, a decrease of 60%
