About Urban Impact
Urban Impact was launched as the first multi-material recycling company in Metro Vancouver. They are a family-owned business with a fresh, innovative approach to the management of waste and recycling. For more than 20 years, they have been servicing most key industrial and commercial and government sectors.
In 1989, Urban Impact began as founder Nicole Stefenelli’s university project. Nicole was seeking to prove that it was viable for commercial businesses to reduce their waste disposal costs and go green. She unequivocally believed that recycling was worth the effort as it conserves natural resources, reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill and saves energy. Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, Nicole’s passion for recycling led her to create Urban Impact to promote green solutions for the recovery and reuse of paper and cardboard.
