Busch Systems originated from a vision to revolutionize recycling, following the introduction of the first curbside recycling program introduced in 1981. The program integrated oversized industrial collection carts throughout residential communities in Kitchener, Ontario; equipped with heavy duty plastics and rudimentary sorting mechanisms. In 1985, Craig Busch recognized the programs shortcomings, founding Busch Systems a small manufacturing company which sought to transform the recycling industry with customized containers designed to maximize participation rates. The lightweight, durable recycling bins incorporated simplified sorting mechanisms with smaller moulds.
Several companies have attempted to capitalize on the inventions patented by Busch, establishing alternative recycling solutions which fail to parallel the quality and commitment to sustainability which Busch fosters. Including, the mandated development of containers consisting of thirty five percent recycled content, which are one hundred percent recyclable and made in North America.
From its humble beginnings twenty five years ago the company has expanded internationally, with a product portfolio detailing upward of two hundred products and over forty employees. The company develops more new moulded recycling, waste and compost containers than all other manufacturers combined. Further, today over ninety percent of Ontario households and over forty million households worldwide utilize curbside recycling programs with customized containers. This is thanks in part to the efforts pioneered by Busch and its passion for economical, durable and future friendly products.
