Solar-powered trash can will pay for itself (Parks and Rec Director Roger Moss)
East Hartford Gazette, January 25, 2007

"In an effort to reduce the calls for service, create an aesthetically pleasing entrance to our Town Hall free from little and refuse, and finally eliminate the unsanitary condition created by various vermin...an environmentally friendly, solar driven trash compacting receptacle was purchased. ...[The BigBelly] works well and so far has seemed to solve a long standing, labor intensive, vexing problem."

In the "Belly" of the Beast
New York Daily News, July 2005

"Each BigBellyTM holds the same amount as six to eight standard trash cans and is fully enclosed to keep litter contained. It carries a number of safety precautions. The compactor can not operate if either the trash removal door or access panel is open, and a flap keeps hands from reaching into the compaction area. 'I am confident that we are going to have a cleaner and better Flushing than ever before,' said Flushing Assemblyman Jimmy Meng at the unveiling."

"Debra Foster, an East Hampton Town Board member who pushed the pilot program, said the machine would reduce the number of trips town employees make to collect trash, saving labor and gasoline. She said she thought the machine would pay for itself in a year. 'It's environmentally sound and economically sound,' she said."

BigBellyTM has Appetite for Trash
Wired News, March 2005

"Poss envisions the devices being used in heavily trafficked urban areas and by private companies as an alternative to trash cans. For cities, he believes the environmental benefits of reducing the frequency of garbage truck pickups make BigBellyTM worth considering. Nearly all (91 percent of) trash trucks in the United States get about 3 miles per gallon running on diesel fuel that produces highly toxic exhaust, according to Inform, a national nonprofit environmental research group."

"The can, called the BigBellyTM, was tried in Chinatown starting on Feb. 14 and then moved to Tribeca on Feb. 28, says Department of Sanitation spokeswoman Taryn Duckett. 'We're testing it out to see how effective it is environmentally,' she said."
