Canadian Business today ranked RecycleSmart No. 109 on the 32nd annual Growth List, the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies. This is the 4th consecutive year that RecycleSmart has placed on the Growth list as the company continues to achieve double digit year over year revenue growth.


Produced by Canada’s premier business and current affairs media brands, the Growth List ranks Canadian businesses on five-year revenue growth. Growth List winners are profiled in a special print issue of Canadian Business published with Maclean’s magazine and online at CanadianBusiness.com and GrowthList.ca.


RecycleSmart made the 2020 Growth List with five-year revenue growth of 875%. “The companies on the 2020 Growth List are really exceptional. Their stories are a masterclass in how to survive when the economy throws a curveball. Despite turbulence, the 2020 Growth List companies showed resilience, spirit and, most importantly, empathy and strong leadership,” says Susan Grimbly, Growth List Editor. “As we celebrate over 30 years of the Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies program, it’s encouraging to see that the heart of Canada’s entrepreneurial community beats strong, even in tough times.”


“RecycleSmart is honoured to be on the Growth List ranking for the fourth consecutive year” says CEO Rob Duthie. “This achievement reflects the dedication of the RecycleSmart team and the ongoing demand for technology enabled management of waste and recycling services by Canadian businesses.”
