Founded in 2003, Needham-based BigBelly Solar applies proprietary energy management technology to develop and sell innovative energy efficient products. The Company’s first product is the BigBelly Solar Compactor, the world’s first and only solar powered trash receptacle capable of automatically compacting waste. The BigBelly is a trash can sized, solar powered, automatic waste compactor designed to replace or supplement standard outdoor cans at high traffic, high trash volume public sites. The unit takes up as much space as the “footprint” of an ordinary receptacle, but its capacity is five times greater. Increased capacity reduces collection trips and can cut fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions by 80%. MCRC invested to support the rapid growth of the Company.
