Work Culture

We care about the links between waste creation (from extraction to manufacture to disposal) and its impacts on human health and our planet’s ecology.

We are part of a wide ranging movement to move to a circular economy and create a more just and sustainable world.

We are inclusive and accepting, committed and passionate, and we’d love to hear from you!

Four Reasons to work in Waste Management and Reduction

Waste management and reduction may be behind the scenes, but it plays an increasingly important role in our everyday lives.

Be Part of the Climate Solution

We work on the frontlines of climate change everyday as we look for ways to reduce our impact on the planet.  Waste reduction is just as important as clean energy.

Growing Field

Recycling and reuse create at least 9 times more jobs than landfills and incinerators, and opportunities in waste management continue to grow.

Make a Difference

Any position in waste reduction can make a difference in your local community – whether it’s sorting recycling, writing a solid waste management plan, repairing bicycles, or educating the public.

Variety

There are a variety of positions from entry-level to senior management, and employers include a range of governments, businesses, and non-profit societies. Positions call for a range of skills, and there are countless ways to start your career in this field.
