Smart bins


The Droitwich based Egbert Taylor Group, which includes prominent brands Taylor and Sellers, has united with Bigbelly Inc, the architect of the world’s leading smart waste and recycling system, in a strategic partnership. The move combines Egbert Taylor Group’s heritage with Bigbelly’s approach to innovation in public space waste systems.

The move, which will see the Bigbelly UK sales and operations teams transfer across to the Egbert Taylor Group, will drive growth for both brands.

Bigbelly’s smart waste and recycling system, which has been widely referred to as the ‘world’s most hi-tech bin’, gathers, consolidates and analyses data from its smart collection stations. It provides real-time fleet status, alerts and reports that help optimise operations while ensuring total waste containment. This fully integrated system delivers a concise, up-to-the-minute view of the entire waste and recycling footprint, helping to beautify space, streamline operations and contain costs.

The waste and recycling stations are the smart, solar-powered, street-tough hardware component of the Bigbelly system. The unique station compaction technology captures eight times more waste and recycling than traditional bins. Compaction, coupled with cloud connection, dramatically decreases collection frequency and enables customers to maintain its fleet with real-time updates.
