District 9 is about to get more clean and green! Approximately 30 Bigbelly smart waste containers were installed during the week of June 8 along major corridors in the District, including Manchester Avenue, Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and Figueroa Street.
Since taking office in 2013, Price has worked tirelessly to uplift the District as part of his “Clean & Green” initiative—orchestrating hundreds of community clean-ups and directing resources to remove trash, bulky items and illegally dumped items from alleys and neighborhood streets.
The Bigbelly stations contain a built-in compactor, which increases waste volume and improves operational efficiencies. The “smart” system and its cloud-connected communication informs waste collection operators when the units need emptying.
“South LA children, families and seniors deserve to live in a clean and healthy environment,” Councilmember Price said. “Over the years, we have made important strides and we look forward to doing more to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods. The new Bigbelly stations will have a positive impact on our daily lives and throughout our community.”
