About Us


In 2010, Shift Recycling was founded by Gary Diamond who wanted to create a better solution for businesses and individuals to recycle their electronics. Leaving his career as a corporate lawyer in Toronto, Gary started Shift as a one man operation collecting electronics with a rented truck.
