About Urban Impact
Ok, so who are we?
Urban Impact was launched as the first multi-material recycling company in the Lower Mainland. A family-owned and operated business, Urban is committed to environmental conservation and global responsibility.
Today, Urban Impact services 4500 locations, from Whistler to Chilliwack. Urban Impact specializes in office recycling, shredding, and site audits. We offer a comprehensive paper recycling service for commercial, institutional, municipal and government Zero Waste Program offerings for municipalities and large and medium sized corporate clients. In 2009, Urban Impact collected and diverted 90,000 Metric Tonnes of recyclable material from local landfills.
We Live by a Zero Waste Philosophy.
Urban Impact is dedicated to providing personalized counsel and service to help clients reduce their waste and carbon footprint – without hurting their bottom lines. We are passionate about sustainability, recycling, energy issues and how technology innovations of all kinds can make a difference. We live by a “zero waste” philosophy that inspires businesses and individuals to make a difference by reducing the waste we send to local landfills. Urban dedicates itself to two things: providing our clients with exceptional value and great service.
