Throw some trash and learn something amazing! As it says on Västerås new waste bins from Bigbelly

The bins are designed to different garbage creatures and share a piece of information by sound, each time someone throws debris in the waste bin. The project launched in Västerås and is based on curiosity and contains 100 different audio files with facts in sustainability, animals, nature and health.

The new talking Bigbelly bins are a direct result of the action plan for a safer city that Västerås city and Västerås City's collaboration has developed together. The goal is to reduce littering while making it fun to throw away debris.

The execution corresponds to the city's three strategic development areas; It is an idea that works with curiosity and learning to increase comfort and contribute to an ecologically sustainable city, says Anna Thunell, Chairman of the Technical Board, City of Västerås.

The Bigbelly barrels have produced good results in other cities when it comes to reducing littering, and we'd love to see this is the beginning of a venture that the whole city gets to take part in.

Sustainable waste bins

Bigbelly's bins are more smarter than the traditional bins. They compress the waste automatically and can then take care of large volumes in public environments. If necessary emptying, the bins notify their filling level directly to staff through the cloud-based application CLEAN or e-mail.

Bigbelly's smart waste bins drive themselves with renewable solar energy and provide the opportunity for advanced standalone technologies with different types of themes, both in terms of sound and design.
