Celebrating 30 Years

Our Story

Wow...a lot can happen in thirty years! Many faces, places and spaces have been a part of our journey and we’ve picked out a few points below to share:

First Curbside Recycling Container


The first curbside recycling program was implemented in Kitchener, ON. Craig Busch, then a student at York University in Toronto, ON recognized the program could be improved.

Busch Systems is Born


Busch Systems was born! Craig came to market with a lighter, more durable recycling bin and an inaugural order of 100,000 bins from the City of Hamilton, ON set our company on its way.

New Recycling Containers Begin


With Busch Systems now supplying half of the Blue Boxes used in Canada and having success in the U.S, our company begins to design more new containers most of which are still in the product line today!

Busch Systems Forms Manufacturing Plant


Busch Systems forms its own manufacturing plant which assures quality and quick turn-around for custom orders.
