BigBelly Solar CompactorThe BigBelly system delivers all of these benefits using 100% solar energy – a free, abundant and non-polluting renewable resource. By using solar power to compact waste at the point of collection, each BigBelly solar compactor can hold about five times the amount of waste as a typical receptacle, eliminating the need for four out of five collection trips system wide. JCCC now has three units on campus that were sponsored by the Student Sustainability Committee.
