The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership (DBP) on Monday announced the installation of Bigbelly’s smart waste and recycling system throughout Downtown Brooklyn. This system is part of DBP’s long-term commitment to encourage and facilitate the use of green technology in the neighborhood and to keep the area clean.
The first set of solar-powered trash and recycling compactors will be installed by Sunday, and the remaining will be installed once the MetroTech BID expansion is completed. Bigbelly, Inc. is providing the smart and connected waste and recycling system.
“Solar-powered compactors will transform the streetscape of Downtown Brooklyn for the better,” said Tucker Reed, president of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership. “This installation will help us achieve one of our chief goals: ensuring that the area is clean for workers, residents and visitors.”
