Intelligent Waste and Recycling Collection BigBelly Solar provides garbage collectors with real-time data and onsite compaction to bring cost savings, environmental benefits, and ease traffic congestion.
ENVIRONMENTAL BigBelly Solar slashes greenhouse gas emissions, and reduces fuel consumption, from garbage trucks.
ECONOMIC Garbage collectors save money by using less fuel and allocating staff to other tasks, as well as reducing landfill tipping fees.
Developed in USA
Through the use of solar power and smart monitoring technologies, BigBelly Solar makes garbage collection intelligent with benefits to cities, transit organizations, and college campuses. By providing garbage collectors with real-time data and historical reporting for collection sites, this solution makes it possible to switch from uninformed schedules to just-in-time collection. These insights mean that collection frequency can be slashed to conserve fuel, reduce emissions, and make operations more efficient. Why a Sustainia100 solution? BigBelly Solar is bringing 21st Century technology solutions to a service that has seen little innovation in many decades. Garbage trucks are some of the least efficient vehicles on the road, some only getting 2 miles per gallon. Taking these trucks off the road conserves fuel, limits emissions, avoids traffic jams, and cuts down on wear and tear on the streets. The BigBelly garbage collectors are powered by 100% renewable solar energy.
