“I have a philosophy that innovation is often overlooked in certain areas of society because it’s just off the radar of most people” explains co-founder Colin Bell. He calls this concept of finding opportunities where others don’t see opportunity as “Looking Under Bridges”, alluding to the fact that the area under bridges is often a hidden, overlooked area in many urban environments. “When you look under bridges you often find interesting areas – hidden parks, quirky people, or just a place that most people never go”. RecycleSmart has taken that same approach, innovating in an industry that is often passed over when innovators look for an industry to disrupt.”
