Garbage , Garbage and more Garbage ! TRANSCONA Biz introduces Big Belly , a first in Manitoba. The term refers to Solar Trash Compactors which will be up and running on Regent. Theses state of the art Big Bellys can accommodate 5 times the amount of waste as old containers. Each time a unit nears capacity, a solar powered compactor inside compresses it.
The new system communicates through a cellular connection informing staff when getting full. Pick-ups can be scheduled when needed, saving fuel, staff time and resources. It’s a high tech system already in use in places like San Francisco’s world famous Fisherman’s Wharf. A perfect combination of renewable energy and waste reduction. The Future has arrived for GARBAGE:
