The Starlight Story

Software built by haulers, for haulers.

Our story starts in 2015 when Bill Bradley identified the need for software to provide actionable information and real-time control to run his hauling and recycling companies, 5280 Waste and 5280 Recycling, more efficiently and profitably. Not finding anything suitable in the market, he decided to build one, the genesis of Starlight Software Solutions.

Today, with Starlight technology as the foundation of its end-to-end business management system, 5280 Waste is a powerhouse, having grown exponentially.  The company now dominates the local market in Denver, Colorado as the largest independent roll-off company in the Rocky Mountain West.

Having demonstrated success at home and beginning to share ideas with other haulers and recyclers across the country, it became clear that business owners, like Bill, were also seeking better solutions. Starlight has grown its technology, portfolio of offerings, and customer base through innovative and differentiated solutions, all designed and developed in partnership with haulers and recyclers at each step.

Now Starlight’s new cloud-based solution serves a broader segment of the market and brings the innovations developed by Starlight to a wider audience. We help all of our partners grow with a solid foundation that allows them to focus on efficiency and profitability of their business with a single, seamless enterprise-wide solution that delivers meaningful, actionable, live data and analysis.

We are proud to be that single, comprehensive solution helping our partners dominate their local market to drive scalable growth, revenue and profit.
