Clean is Green Raleigh

Part of the Clean is Green Raleigh campaign, the City of Raleigh’s BigBelly Solar sidewalk trash and recycling collection system in the Glenwood South district is “eliminating the waste in waste collection.” This pilot project also marks the first widespread public recycling effort in Downtown Raleigh.

Paid for by the Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency & Conservation Block grant, these solar-powered trash and recycling stations decrease the number of collection trips by 80%. The compacting feature removes the air volume of wasted space and the CLEAN (Collection Logistics Efficiency and Notification) management system wirelessly communicates when the stations need to be emptied. Using the BigBelly Solar system, pickups are predicted to fall to twice weekly with one additional weekly trip to gather recyclables, which are a revenue generator for the City. This saves significant fuel, staff time, and equipment wear and tear.
