By extending the “Big Belly” public waste disposal network to include more public areas in Dubrovnik, the City Waste Disposal company “Čistoća” is continuing to modernize the waste collection system this year. A further ten new collection and recycling tanks have been set up in the Pile area just outside of the Old City of Dubrovnik.
In total, 21 cities have so far installed 38 digital, smart and connected Big Belly high capacity waste containers.
Thanks to a GPS transmitter and software, these real-time containers send signals of remaining capacity and notifications when they need to be emptied. Their use reduces operating costs, primarily fuel consumption, and hence CO2 emissions.
