Each year more than 2.2 million people visit Bondi Beach where waste collection is a huge undertaking for the council’s waste management team.

As Australia’s most famous beach its often the first port of call for backpackers, billionaires, surfers and sunbathers – with Bondi’s golden sands and clear turquoise waters, it never fails to impress.

Waverley Council has now deployed 42 Bigbelly Solar compactors across Bondi Beach and Bondi Junction.

Holding more than 5 times the amount of rubbish of an ordinary 120L rubbish bin the Bigbelly is the latest in waste management technology.

As the Bigbelly fills up there is a sensor inside which senses the fullness level of the bin. When the rubbish reaches a certain point, it compacts the rubbish, right here at the shore line. The Bigbelly then sends a notification to waste collectors telling them when to collect.

Waste Management reinvented. Now a local at Australia’s most famous beach.
