RICHMOND, B.C. (September 27, 2019) – RecycleSmart is pleased to announce it placed No. 145 on the inaugural Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies. The list ranks 400 top Canadian companies on three-year revenue growth; RecycleSmart earned its spot with 257% growth.

“RecycleSmart is honoured to earn a spot on the inaugural Canada’s Top Growing Companies list,” says Jaclyn McPhadden, Co-Founder and Chief Administrative Officer, RecycleSmart. “We have been in a hyper-growth mode for several years largely due to very satisfied customers referring us within and across their networks. We are extremely proud of this fact and it speaks to how highly valued and much needed our services are. Ultimately, we promise clients a cost reduction, wrapped in a sustainable solution—it’s a win-win.”

RecycleSmart is Canada’s leading smart waste services provider, using data and technology to make waste management more sustainable and cost less—diverting almost a third (30%) more waste from landfills; and thanks in part to Recycle Smart’s no cost consultancy model, a guaranteed minimum 10% cost savings for customers.

RecycleSmart disrupts the traditional waste management industry by using innovative technology solutions to analyze all aspects of a recycling program. The three-pronged approach is based on state-of-the-art Internet of Things (IoT) sensors placed on bins to collect real-time data; RecycleSmart “waste wizards” who use sophisticated programs and industry expertise to analyze the information and draw insights; and on-the-ground field techs to maintain the sensors and provide on-site waste audits. The result is that RecycleSmart clients receive customized waste management and reduction services and strategies which can be tweaked and tailored on an ongoing basis for optimal results.

And these technology solutions mean that clients save valuable time, money and resources—while doing away with confusing pricing structures, unnecessary inefficiencies and complex contracts. Customers get complete transparency on pricing, performance, analytics and more, which is why RecycleSmart’s growing base includes everyone from local independents to Fortune 500 companies.

The company has maintained its position as one of the country’s most exciting and rapidly expanding corporations by exponentially increasing annual revenue since its founding in 2008. Fueling this year’s record-setting growth is RecycleSmart’s ongoing Ontario market penetration and rapid expansion in Quebec. This is bolstered by several new technology innovations that further enhance the efficacy, accuracy and convenience of the service, driving both better sustainability results and more cost savings for clients, making RecycleSmart’s value proposition even more attractive.

“We created the Canada’s Top Growing Companies program because we believe there is much Report on Business readers can learn from the successes of the country’s best entrepreneurs,” says Derek DeCloet, Editor of Report on Business and Executive Editor at The Globe and Mail. “We’re excited to be telling their stories.”

“The 400 companies on the inaugural Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies ranking demonstrate ambition, innovation and tremendous business acumen,” says Phillip Crawley, Publisher and CEO of The Globe and Mail. “Their contributions to the economy help to make Canada a better place, and warrant commendation.”
