We are pleased to welcome City of Subiaco to the Smartsensor Technologies family. The Council have recently deployed 5 Bigbelly Solar Compacting stations which have been installed in the busy Station Square along with the picturesque Shenton Park, replacing over 10 non-compacting waste containers.
The aim of the Bigbelly’s is to create an optimised, smarter waste management system, over the coming months we look forward to seeing the smart waste stations help to decrease the number of waste collections required in this area. This will lead to huge operational savings for the Council as well as helping to keep the area cleaner and litter-free for visitors and the community.
The Bigbelly Solar Compactor functions by using solar energy to automatically compact the collected waste once it hits fill-level sensors located inside of the station. This means that a single unit can hold up to 660 litres of compacted waste which is five times the capacity of a standard rubbish bin! Further, when the Bigbelly has reached fullness capacity, a text or email is sent to the collection team letting them know that a station is ready for collection.
We are looking forward to assisting City of Subiaco with maintaining an optimised smart waste management system for many years to come.
