Smart Carts at City Parks

Bigbelly Bin at City Park

Trash and recycling receptacles at city parks play a key role in keeping green public places clean and litter-free, with regular collections ensuring that they do not become overflowing eyesores. Thanks to grant funding from Cal Recycle, the City has been able to replace a few of its regular receptacles with solar-powered trash compactors. These Bigbelly bins have a 50-gallon capacity, and reportedly reduce the size of the items deposited by 80 percent. They are also equipped with a computer chip that electronically notifies City staff when they are full and ready for emptying. Bigbelly bins are currently installed at Pantera, Peterson, Sycamore Canyon, and Maple Hill parks as well as Steep Canyon trail, with plans to install more at other city parks as grant funding becomes available.
