In 2010, Shift Recycling was founded by Gary Diamond, who wanted to create a better solution for OEMs, businesses, municipalities and citizens to conveniently recycle their electronics. Leaving his career as a corporate lawyer, Gary started Shift as a one-man operation collecting electronics with a rented truck.
Today, the Shift Group of Companies operate out of a 130,000-square foot, state-of-the-art processing facility in Toronto, Ontario. Co-located with ITAD service provider Revolution, we offer a complete solution for IT disposition across Canada and into the United States.
Everything we do at Shift is driven by our core pillars. They guide how we run our business, treat our customers, and protect the environment.
We do what we say we’re going to do.
We strive to build solutions that solve our customer’s problems and help to boost their bottom line. We create systems that produce excellent customer service, no matter the job.
People make it happen.
A company is only as good as its people. We invest in our people, giving them the tools they need to succeed — because we know that makes them efficient and innovative. Because we all take pride in getting the job done properly and on time.
Certifications are tools to operate a better business.
Globally recognized certifications like R2 mean that we do things properly and transparently. Certifications are more than just words on paper – they’re at the core of everything we do.
