Bigbelly is proud to have an ever-growing community of higher education facilities who deploy Bigbelly’s Smart Waste & Recycling solution on campus. In alignment with Bigbelly’s “3 Pillars,” the Bigbelly Higher Ed community realizes 3 key benefits to their public spaces: Sustainability, Beautification (also referred to as “Clean & Safe”), and Operational Efficiency.
Each college or university who adopts Bigbelly has their own unique experiences with these three benefits, based on their priorities, needs, and core values. Though the reasons why they first adopt Bigbelly may differ, their on-campus communities gain all three advantages of Bigbelly’s Smart Waste & Recycling technology.
Speaking to their experience with Smart Waste & Recycling solutions on their campuses are two Bigbelly Higher Ed Community Leaders: Lin King, Zero Waste Manager at UC Berkeley, and Mark Helms, Assistant VP of Facilities Services at the University of Florida. APPA, Bigbelly, and our HE Community Leaders are excited looking forward to bringing everyone together for a discussion on Smart Waste and the multifaceted advantages for college & university campuses.
1. Sustainability: Higher Ed facilities often begin their conversation with Bigbelly and deploy it on campus as a sustainability technology.
2. Beautification (aka. “Clean & Safe”): Beautification, public health, and safety are universal campus values worldwide, and schools have achieved these goals consistently by deploying Bigbelly.
3. Operational Efficiency: By reducing the total OPEX associated with on-campus waste management, key decision makers adopt Bigbelly for its impact on cost savings.
