BIG BAG in short
BIG BAG launched specialized bags for construction waste year 2003.
The method of allowing a crane truck , to collect building waste from several projects during one journey quickly became popular.
2004 BIG BAG won the prestigious award ”Årets Nyföretagare”. Several years in a row BIG BAG met the criteria for Dagens Industris award ”Ung Gasell”.
In 2008 BIG BAG was nominated, together with eight other inventive companies, for the award ”Årets Innovation”. BIG BAG did not win.
Neither did a less-known company back then by the name of Spotify.
2005 was the year where BIG BAG established their first sorting facility for waste.
Since 2010 the company has acquired environment and quality certifications from ISO 9001 and 14001.
2013 a new bag was developed. Easier to set up, more ergonomic and easy to seal. 2014 BIG BOX was presented (see page 5), a container adapted for cities and establishments with lack of space.
BIG BAG är dedicated to its vision to continue develop simple and environmentally friendly services for waste management at small and large building projects.
Our goal is by cooperating with the building client ”save building hours” without lower the standard of recycling.
The story of how a floor layer redrew the waste industry.
In Spring 2003 a couple of floor layers travelled to Barcelona, for a weekend get-away. While stopping by a bar, they noticed a couple of large bags. The bags contained parts of a torn out bathroom, obviously from some small project near by.
The beer glasses were not even half empty, when a crane truck arrived to the site, lifted on board the bags and disappeared.
That's where the idea was born, to start up a similar business in Sweden. To help builders in Sweden to not have to drive away their waste.
Already in August the same year was BIG BAG established. The advantages of using bags instead of wasting hours on driving the waste away by trailer was so obvious, that the construction industry quickly latched onto the idea.
A few years later, BIG BAGs were a common occurrence at building sites and renovation projects. Every day a small fleet of crane trucks collect building waste in bags from more than 200 projects, waste that otherwise would be transported by as many cars and trailers.
