Bold action for a cleaner and better future
At Rubicon, we have an unrelenting commitment to ending waste by helping our customers prevent it, recycle it, and divert it from landfills. We are proud of our experience working with cities to deploy next-generation technology in their waste and recycling fleets, innovating alongside haulers to make their collection efforts more efficient. This work not only saves money—it gives our communities a cleaner and safer future.
We are innovating in ways we could not have foreseen during a pandemic that has upended our world, and we recognize that there is still a massive opportunity to give people a better choice on waste. We also acknowledge that we all can play a critical role in elevating the voices of vulnerable communities disproportionately affected by waste.
We are excited for the challenge that will define the global agenda in the coming decades: ensuring that successive generations prosper in healthy and safe environments.
