The enclosed smart containers compact trash automatically, are solar-powered, and are equipped with sensors that electronically notify Public Works when it is time for them to be emptied—saving money long-term on labor and fuel costs.

Big Belly, Ardmore, Oct. 23, 2019Ardmore is the second Lower Merion location for the new Bigbellys—others were installed in Bryn Mawr earlier in 2019. Plans to install more in additional Township shopping and restaurant districts are planned for 2020.

The Bigbelly containers streamline operations for trash and recycling crews, and cut down on trash that would occasionally spill out of the traditional public street cans. They are positioned in the places in the public right-of-way where they are needed most, keeping the community clean.
