“We are looking at a number of new and innovative ways to be cleaner and greener here in Stratford,” said Mayor Laura Hoydick. “These new Bigbelly solar compacting receptacles offer us a way to do that while saving money on both tipping fees, and on the labor to empty them. I am looking forward to getting them in use throughout the town this week.”
Wireless connectivity will send notifications to collectors when the bins are nearing capacity.
Officials said this smart technology can reduce fuel usage and emissions by up to 80 percent.
