scheduled only when needed, saving time and resources.

Trash Compactor,” says Justin Phillips, Co-Founder & CEO of Sycamore Energy. “We’re very happy to help bring this clean, green technology to Canada and already see it in action.”

to smart, green waste and recycling solutions, the Bigbelly platform can also provide public WIFI
hotspots, urban sensors, small cell and wireless equipment, and other communications infrastructure.

City of Winnipeg Community Incentive Grant and the Transcona Business Improvement Zone (BIZ).
