Symphony Services has announced that BigBelly Solar, a Massachusetts-based company producing a patented solar powered compacting trash receptacle that is completely self-powered, selected the company to engineer new software for its flagship cordless compaction system.
Big Belly compacts trash to one-fifth normal size, thus allowing more trash to be stored, which cuts down on collection trips. Plus, they have wireless, are connected to a central database, and this enables collection to be done more efficiently, which saves even more time, money, and gas – something which helps the planet too.
Imagine. A garbage can that will need software upgrades!
