Bigbelly Case Study
Client Since: 2014

"Bridge Bank understands the challenges that we’re going through as a growth company and they’re both flexible and nimble. They can move with us as our company changes almost on a day-to-day basis."

Steve Delaney , CFO Bigbelly

Bigbelly is the world leader in smart waste and recycling solutions, helping cities, towns, park systems, universities and more to keep their spaces clean. They started in 2003 with a solar powered trash compactor that could fit 5x more trash than the traditional trash can and have since leveraged information technology to provide their clients with real-time data on every waste and recycling station in their program.

This technology provides a laundry list of benefits to Bigbelly’s clients that includes cleaning up their spaces by eliminating overflows and reducing litter, saving time and resources, and reducing congestion on city streets from garbage trucks. This results in huge savings; Philadelphia saved $800,000 in the first year they began using Bigbelly’s system.

As Bigbelly evolved from a manufacturing company to a technology company they realized they needed a bank that could understand their needs now and where they were going in the future. While many of the banks they had dealt with in the past had gotten too rigid, Bridge Bank came to the table as an agile resource with an understanding that Bigbelly is a growth company with ever-changing needs.

We’re happy to report that Bigbelly is in 45 countries around the world and counting. If you want a bank that won’t try to fit your business into a box, we’re ready to help.
