Retailers and venues use Bigbelly to automate much of the work needed to manage the all-too-frequent task of trash and recycling collection.

Office buildings, retailers, hospitality, healthcare facilitates, and venues are increasing productivity, showcasing commitment to sustainability, and enhancing the customer experience with Bigbelly’s Connect platform. We empower corporations of every size to modernize a core service while providing a multi-purpose platform to deploy other applications as desired. Competition is driving businesses to do more with less every day amidst price deflation, increased personnel costs, and investor demands. Adding to the challenge, corporate sustainability initiatives are increasingly important as customers expect it and employees request it. Companies can rethink their services, operations, and drive gains to their bottom line with Bigbelly’s technology.

Enhance the Customer
Experience Immediately

Bigbelly enables companies to make a great first impression before stepping in the building. Total containment and increased capacity eliminate overflowing receptacles and ambient litter. Smart waste management ensures that dining customers are never interrupted by employees collecting the nearby garbage with a big wheeled bin during peak periods.

Employees spend more time each week on customer-facing work, whether holding an umbrella for a customer loading groceries or keeping properties pristine. They love their Bigbelly stations because they empty trash 80% less and get to spend more time with customers. Companies are showing their teams that they care about their work and ensure employees touch more customers and less trash.

Deploy Automation for
Increased Productivity

Companies that implement the Bigbelly smart waste & recycling system experience a 5x increase in productivity, while being cash flow positive for waste operations almost immediately. Employees responsible for waste collection receive automated notifications that tell them exactly which location needs to be collected.

Time previously spent walking around to check each waste bin or cleaning overflows can now be reallocated to more meaningful tasks. Store managers have real-time ability to keep tabs on where and how resources are spent for waste collection across shifts and throughout the week, month, season, and year for analysis and proper planning.

Showcase Organizational
Commitment to Sustainability

Between the outdoor stations’ visible solar panel and a significant reduction in thousands of plastic trashcan liners headed to the landfill, customers and employees will know that you are at the forefront of sustainability. Promote these sustainability initiatives in highly visible areas from store entrances to dining areas and parking lots.

The Bigbelly smart waste & recycling system enables retailers to dramatically reduce the amount of recycling improperly entering the waste stream and stores without compacting dumpsters can reduce landfill contribution. This software-based system enables retailers to measure, track, and analyze recycling volumes and diversion at a single retail location or across an entire chain of stores.

Leverage Core Infrastructure to Deliver Additional Applications & Technologies

Connect is a platform deployed in the public right-of-way that delivers much more than smart waste and recycling. In addition to modernizing a core service, it is optimal for hosting additional technologies. It is easy to access and can hide technology in plain sight.

Companies can take advantage of required front-of-house waste infrastructure as a holding place for other technology and applications such as Wi-Fi Hotspots, location-based beacon networks, and environmental sensors. Multi-purposing the smart waste system eases logistics and further enhances the environment with improved services.
