Answers to FAQs
How much sunlight is needed?
Is it susceptible to vandalism?
The BigBelly® needs no direct sunlight.
It runs on a 12-Volt battery that is kept
charged by its solar panel on sunny or
cloudy days. The battery provides a
power reserve for several weeks, so it
performs well even in northern latitudes.
BigBelly is made tough from heavy-gauge
galvanized steel, polycarbonate shield
and high impact ABS plastic sides. The
BigBelly resists scratches, dents and
graffiti and units are bolted down for
added security.
Do the bags get too heavy?
Is it resistant to sand and water?
Customers have not had problems with
bag weight. We have designed the
BigBelly to be simple and ergonomically
friendly to use. Weight can also be
controlled using a 5-position switch.
Yes. The exterior has passed a 10-year
accelerated life-cycle corrosion test.
BigBelly has few moving parts, and the
simple, enclosed design helps keep
out sand. The powder-coat finish is
designed for long life in icy and marine
environments.
Is the machine safe to use?
Yes. The hopper prevents hands from
reaching the compaction area, and the
unit locks. The motor will not operate
with the door open. The machine also
runs on a safe, low voltage.
Does holding compacted
trash create odor problems?
How hard it is to maintain?
Maintaining the BigBelly is easy.
Preventive maintenance includes routine
chain lubrication every year and battery
replacement about every 4-5 years.
Specifications
No. The BigBelly is an enclosed
system, so odors are contained
inside. Customers have reported
improved odor control compared
to open-air cans.
Dimensions: 26.1"W x 25.9"D x 50.4"H
(66.3 cm W x 65.8 cm D x 128 cm H)
Weight: 300 lbs. (137 kg)
Compaction Force: 1250 lbs. (568 kg)
Capacity: 160–240 gal. uncompacted
(606-908 liters)
Is it expensive?
Drive System: Gear-motor with chain
drive.
While more expensive than a
regular trash can, the BigBelly
reduces collection requirements 4
times or more, saving thousands
over its lifetime. Contact us for a
custom savings analysis.

Commitment to
the Environment
Powder Coat Painting
BigBelly is CE and RoHS Complaint
• Powder coat painting is the most environmentally
friendly way to paint our metal
• CE means BigBelly comforms to tough European
safety standards
• It is not toxic, not hazardous, there is no waste,
no fumes and virtually no VOC (volatile organic
compounds)
• RoHS = Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive
• The powder gets a positive charge and is attracted to
a grounded piece of metal. The part is then baked in
a kiln and powder flows evenly across the part.
Packaging
• BigBellySolar has made an effort to reduce the
amount of packaging for our product (balanced by
need to protect BigBelly in shipping)
• Less cardboard and plastic for our customer
to recycle or dispose of
• Cardboard and pallets are recyclable
• RoHS restricts the use of six hazardous materials
(lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, and
two fire retardants PBBB and PBDE)
• No lead is used in BigBelly circuit boards and no
chromium used in the plating of our sheet metal.
Also, our product does not contain the other
hazardous materials listed.
• RoHS is not mandatory, we choose to meet this higher
requirement and pay more to do so
Side panels and Hopper Cover
• Our black ABS plastic contains post consumer
recycled content of 80% to 100% and can itself
be recycled.
Reduction in Bags
New Leak Proof Bins
• Part of overall BigBelly efficiency
model is reduction in number of bags
vs. traditional receptacle
• We have developed leakproof bins for BigBelly
• We estimate a 75% reduction in
# of bags needed w/ a BigBelly
• Customer can choose to
eliminate bags entirely with
this new bin
Our Suppliers
Batteries
• Our suppliers have several common
characteristics
• Our lead acid battery is
essentially the same as an
automotive battery
• All have relatively new state of the art
plants, all are focused on meeting and
exceeding EPA and local environmental
standards, all have shown impressive
gains in this area.
• According to AAA, in the
US there are 100 million
automotive batteries sold
per year and approximately
95%+ are recycled
• For example, our source for manufacturing,
based in VT, has successfully implemented
programs to reduce noise and traffic for
the surrounding local community, has
reduced VOC (volatile organic compound)
emissions by 90%, has made impressive
gains on energy efficiency and recycling
of various material used in its facilities.
It meets ISO9001 standard for quality
management systems and complies
with ISO14001 environmental standards.
