Our Story at Zero Waste
Our Story at Zero Waste

"We represent the premier local driver of Zero Waste practices and policies"


Our Story

Established in 1988, HSR began by offering paper and cardboard collection for recycling and from there grew its services, offering a host of resource management solutions that encourage the highest and best use of materials.

After witnessing the extent of our societal mismanagement of resources on the front-lines for decades, HSR has now transitioned towards providing knowledge, solutions and monitoring for facilities to reduce the amount of waste they generate, as opposed to simply diverting it away from landfill.

This paradigm shift is today referred to as Zero Waste.
