RICHMOND, B.C. Newswire Release, Sept 25, 2020

RecycleSmart is pleased to announce it has placed No. 228 on the 2020 Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies.

Canada’s Top Growing Companies ranks Canadian companies on three-year revenue growth. RecycleSmart earned its spot with three-year revenue growth of 178%.

RecycleSmart is Canada’s leading smart waste services provider for business, using data and technology to make waste management more sustainable and cost less for Canadian businesses.

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.

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 efficiency for clients, making RecycleSmart’s value proposition even more attractive.

RecycleSmart CEO Rob Duthie says “RecycleSmart has continued to provide innovative solutions to Canada’s leading businesses as they strive to reduce waste generated in the most efficient way possible. The Globe and Mail Top Growing Company ranking is recognition that RecycleSmart is making an impact from coast to coast”
