Bigbelly was founded in 2003 with the goal of transforming one of the least efficient and resource-intensive industries on the planet — waste collection. Cities were either collecting too often and wasting fuel and labor while creating CO2 emissions or they were not able to keep up with the demands and overflowing trash cans created litter, health and safety issues. In the following years, the company has evolved to offer a unique solution for the public space by leveraging renewable solar energy and information technology. With the efficiency gains their customers realize, Bigbelly has been instrumental in the implementation of the first wide-spread public space recycling programs in cities such as Philadelphia, Chicago and Boston and is now pioneering public space compostables collection as well. Bigbelly has been recognized as an industry leader in the waste management, environmental, and innovative technology spaces and is recognized as a C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group best practice. With their solutions deployed in every state and more than 47 countries worldwide, Bigbelly continues bringing its Smart Waste & Recycling System to every corner of the world.
