High Capacity Station (HC5):

Bigbelly's HC5 model is the ONLY smart, solar-powered waste compactor that works in any location, thanks to Skip-A-CycleTM patented energy management technology. In its a fifth generation design, the HC5 has been field proven out on streets across the globe.

This first, proven, and leading solar-powered waste compactor delivers a 568 Litres (150 gallons) of capacity, up to 10X a traditional waste bin. Total containment ensures that trash is kept in and pests stay out for cleaner spaces. 

Bigbelly's suite of smart waste bins all communicate their real-time status and notify crews when they are ready to be collected. Having enough capacity and knowing when to collect streamlines waste management operations, increases productivity, and keeps public areas clean and green.
