Bigbelly Connect

Bigbelly’s 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 city service, it is optimal for hosting additional technologies. It is easy to access and can hide technology in plain sight. Cities can take advantage of required public waste infrastructure as a holding place for other technology, applications, and equipment. Multi-purposing the smart waste system eases logistics, declutters the streetscapes, and further enhances the community experience with improved services.




Cloud-Connected Platform for Smart Waste Management

CLEAN Management Console Software is the cornerstone of the Bigbelly Smart Waste & RecyclingSystem, providing full visibility into an entire operation. This is the centralized location from which the system is managed and operational analysis can be done. It includes a set of tools for system setup, management, monitoring, and optimization from either a web-based software or mobile app.

CLEAN Management Console SoftwareSmart stations communicate real-time status directly into CLEAN Management Console. Auto-generated email, text, and online notifications indicate which stations need to be collected to drive increased productivity while eliminating overflows and unnecessary collections.

Users can optimize collection routines, measure and benchmark operations, and realize location-based waste patterns (volume, fill rate, collection activity) across a Bigbelly smart waste fleet.
