BigBelly is working with the city of Philadelphia, which is adopting this new waste collection strategy and quickly realizing a return on investment. BigBellys trash cans compact its contents- increasing the capacity of each bin by 5. Eliminating the need to constantly check the amount of trash in each bin is saving the city millions. The reduction in resources and labor dedicated to keeping the streets of Philadelphia clean has enabled the city to devote more time to improving the recycling program.
CNN recently featured the BigBelly and Philadelphia collaboration as part of their City Tomorrow series. Click the image below to watch the feature.
