Development of a public space recycling program though the City Downtown and waterfront areas as part of a redevelopment project. The program will utilize solar powered compaction bins for collection of materials to try the technology and lower costs for collection.
Installed 16 solar powered self-compacting Big Belly Bins for recyclables which has resulted in diverting 15% of recyclables in the downtown area over a 12 month period. On average each Big Belly was emptied 1.6 times a month saving on collection time and costs by 41%. The Big Belly has received excellent support from staff and the public.
