A Note from Our Founder + CEO

In 2014, I became focused on the idea that we have an outdated, cost prohibitive and inefficient process of commercial waste and recycling. With a landscape of growing environmental concerns and the growing rate of commercial waste production, the lack of emphasis on recycling and rising costs was alarming. In 2014, the EPA claimed a national recycling rate of 34% - today that number is 32%. What's even more alarming is there has been no reliable data to know exactly how well (or poorly) we're doing or how efficiently we’re doing it.

RoadRunner was born from the belief that there had to be a better way.

Our methodology is rooted in modernizing our industry and setting a new standard for waste and recycling services through a mix of applying cutting-edge technology, developing a team of industry experts who know where the industry has been and where we can take it through innovation, and by aligning our own success to that of our customers.

One of our core values is to care personally - not just about our people and customers, but about our planet. We believe waste can't just be someone else's problem, and RoadRunner is up for the challenge to modernize our vital industry and be our customers’ trusted partner in accelerating their path towards Zero Waste through efficient, affordable and sustainable waste and recycling services.

RoadRunner has expanded rapidly to over 500+ employees, successfully providing services to businesses both large and small across all 50 states. With our rate of growth and successful funding of $149M, we're firmly on the road to modernizing waste management and creating a future where waste is a problem of the past.

Sincerely,

Graham Rihn
