BigBelly Solar Compactor Is One Of The Latest Innovative Green Product Designs That Help Us Manage And Conserve Precious Resources
Solar Trashcans Are Phat
In a single year, Americans put over 251 million tons of trash to rest into landfills across the country. While this number alone is staggering, the actual amount of waste that is produced from daily trash collection by fuel-devouring trucks reveals an even more devastating number. Enter the BigBelly Solar Compactor, one of the best new green product design innovations that help clean up our environment and reduce the costs at the same time.

“Each BigBelly is a bin and compactor in one. By compacting trash on the street, the 32-gallon BigBelly can hold 150 to 200 gallons of trash.
