Who we are

Renewi Canada is part of Renewi’s Municipal Division, specializing in the treatment and recycling of organic waste to create compost and NASM (Non Agricultured Sourced Material) for the Canadian market. Renewi Canada has locations in London and Ottawa Ontario as well as Surrey British Columbia and is considered a market leader in the municipal organic recycling process.

Renewi, created in 2017 by the merger of Shanks Group plc and Van Gansewinkel Groep B.V., is a leading waste-to-product business ideally positioned to be part of the solution to some of the main environmental problems facing society today: reducing waste, avoiding pollution, and preventing the unnecessary use of finite natural resources.

With over 7,000 employees across Europe and North America, we have deep expertise and an extensive breadth of waste management products and services.

For us, waste is a state of mind, an opportunity. When we take away someone’s waste we then give it new life. We transform a wide range of used materials into useful products and raw materials for our customers, like recycled paper, metal, plastic and glass, woodchips, compost, energy, fuel, and other products.

In the process we protect the world from contamination, preserve finite natural resources, and enable customers to meet their sustainability goals.With our deep international expertise we also provide our customers with an extensive product range, combined with local service and attention.

Above all, our team is committed and passionate about our mission: waste no more.
