BigBelly Solar Compactor Bins

Aug 13th, 2017

Two new BigBelly Solar Compactor bins have arrived at our Perth campus.

Different to any old rubbish bin, the BigBelly Solar Compactor incorporates a smart, wireless and integrated system that automatically compacts rubbish once the bin has reached full capacity.

The internal compactor permits a capacity of 600L, which means they can hold 5 times more waste than the standard 120L wheelie bin and 6-8 times more than the standard street bin.

Operatives are given access to real time fill levels of the bins and automatically receive a notification when they are 85% full and ready to empty.

You can find the bins at the Hexagon.
