Bigbelly’s Mission & Story

Deploying the Bigbelly system, communities around the world create clean, sustainable welcoming, and engaging spaces that people are proud to call their own.
Born to Transform
Founded in 2003, Bigbelly was determined to transform one of the least efficient and resource-heavy industries: waste operations. Public spaces were either collecting too often and wasting fuel and labor while emitting excess CO2, or alternatively, they were not able to keep up with the demands and overflowing trash cans that created visible waste & litter, attracted pests, and created health and safety issues.
The Evolution of ‘Smart’
In the following years, we evolved to offer a unique and complete solution by leveraging renewable solar energy and information technology. Bigbelly is a Smart Waste Management, Smart City, and Internet of Things (IoT) industry leader and is recognized as a C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group best practice. Industry knowledge & longevity in the market provides us with unparalleled insights backed by extensive data, analytics, and customer successes.
