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 our 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.
