Sanford Mall

Sanford Mall, Appalachian State UniversityThe BigBelly Solar Compactor is a patented compacting trash receptacle that is completely self-powered. Instead of requiring a grid connection, BigBelly uses solar power for 100% of its energy needs.

The BigBelly unit takes up only as much space as the footprint of an ordinary trash receptacle, but its capacity is five times greater which saves money on labor costs. There are a total of four stations - Sanford Mall, near the Library, and near the Central Dining Facility. 

Landscape Services enriches the lawn by using in-house compost and organic fertilizers.
