Essex County communities Gloucester and Manchester-by-the-Sea are using their Clean Energy Choice community matching grants to purchase BigBelly® solar trash compactors. Using the power of the sun, the BigBelly® system automatically compacts trash and reduces collection trips by four times or more. In addition to cutting collection costs, they reduce fuel consumption and diesel exhaust emissions. City and town officials are looking to the solar compaction system to help keep their communities cleaner, to educate the public about practical and cost-effective solar energy applications, and to save time and fuel through more efficient trash collection operations.
