BigBelly® making the most of the sun

Supplier: BigBelly Solar

More BigBelly Solar details
The recent IAAPA show saw the introduction by BigBelly Solar of the first rubbish bin in the world to be powered by the sun.

The bin contains a compactor which is operated by a solar-battery system and can crush five bags of trash into one easy to handle bag. Even without the sun it is claimed to be able to run for between two and three weeks.

Taking up about as much space as the footprint of an ordinary bin, BigBelly is safe and easy to use and both animal-proof and vandal resistant.

Other benefits include a reduction in collection trips due to its greater capacity, plus - says the company - cuts in fuel use, maintenance costs and greenhouse gas emissions.

Based in Needham, Mass., the company has a network of distributors and sales representatives throughout the US, Canada and other parts of the world.
