TORONTO – July 3, 2024 Metro Compactor Service, Canada’s leading expert in waste and recycling equipment and service for over 40 years, is expanding its operations and further growing in Ontario with the acquisition of Ottawa company, Power Compactec Canada.

This acquisition will expand Metro’s capabilities in the province, allowing the company to meet growing demand in Ottawa and the surrounding region.

“This acquisition greatly helps build our presence in the Ottawa marketplace – especially physically,” said Andrew Strudwicke, President, Metro Compactor Service. “It also speaks to our rapid growth across Canada. “While we are already a coast-to-coast provider of waste management equipment and service, expanding key locations through acquisition and experienced service technicians validates this claim and builds trust with our consumers.”

Metro has made a series of strategic announcements in recent years to continue its focus on transforming Canada’s trash: the launch of its iSMART technology; its merger with Wilkinson Chutes, its acquisition of Compaction Plus and last year’s acquisition of Miller Waste Solutions Group to name a few. Metro was also recognized this year as one of Canada’s Top 100 SME Employers.

As an established leader in the waste equipment and service business, Metro Compactor Service will continue to provide its full range of waste equipment services (supply and install of garbage chutes, waste equipment, proactive maintenance, power washing and IoT monitoring) to the commercial, high-rise, and the multi-residential markets – allowing a one-stop-shop for waste equipment, now with increased capabilities to meet new and growing customer needs.

“Metro Compactor Service acknowledges that multi-residential property owners and facility managers at condos and retail outlets are constantly facing energy savings and ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance requirements as well as the strain of rising costs in their entire waste stream,” said Strudwicke. “With this deal, we continue our corporate mandate toward reducing the overall carbon footprint of managing residential waste – and supporting the circular economy.
