Leveraging On Technology To Achieve Efficiency
Cleaner & Greener Streets
This technology will save taxpayers money, introduce sidewalk recycling and keep our streets clean. This is one more important step towards achieving our sustainability goals.Michael Nutter
Philadelphia has over 1,000 Bigbelly stations installed.
Every single time a trash can is emptied, it incurs labor costs, fuel costs and vehicle wear-and-tear — not to mention overflow litter clean-up tasks that use even more human capital. In aggregate, the collection costs associated with each receptacle in a downtown area can exceed $2,000. But cities around the world are now slashing collection frequency and reducing litter with the Bigbelly Smart Waste & Recycling System. By combining increased on-site capacity with compaction, implementing a public space recycling program that actually works and using real-time data and analytics to drive operational planning and resource allocation, these organizations are saving money, reducing their carbon footprint and making their public spaces more attractive for citizens, businesses and visitors.
