Emerging Company of the Year: BigBelly Solar
BigBelly Solar, a global provider of innovative and sustainable solutions for the management of waste & recycling, was named Emerging Company of the Year for its dramatic growth and substantial global influence in increasing resource efficiencies and reducing environmental impacts in the waste management industry. BigBelly Solar saw a significant expansion around the globe in 2011, highlighted by the City of Chicago’s decision to convert their entire downtown operations over to the system, with subsequent expansion into other agencies of the City.
