Urban Impact was launched as the first multi-material recycling company in Metro Vancouver. We’re a family-owned business with a fresh, innovative approach to the management of waste and recycling. For more than 25 years, we’ve been servicing most key industrial and commercial and government sectors.
Today, Urban Impact’s team of over 100 employees and a fleet of 40 recycling trucks provide a wide range of recycling, secure paper shredding, and waste audit services.
Who We Are
We’ve made significant investments in creating two large, modern Materials Recovery Facilities. Urban Impact services 6,500 locations, from Whistler to Chilliwack and in Calgary.
Urban Impact was founded on the premise that there was a need for a different kind of recycling company… one that sets new standards of personal service, cost containment, and customized recycling programs- a simple, way to save money, operate more efficiently and improve environmental performance.
