Our People

Ben Fishman, the founder and General Manager of Benefits Waste Management Ltd. has many years involvement with the Metro Vancouver construction industry. Like many workers on large sites, he was bothered by the significant quantity of materials thrown away – not only materials that could be re-used, but also the nature of what is ending up in the local landfills. The system currently in use by Benefits was developed while working for another company, as a means of improving efficiency and doing some small measure for the environment. When the opportunity came to purchase the the assets of a small waste removal company that did not survive the 2008-2009 downturn, the development became “Benefits Waste Management Ltd.” A company with the sole purpose to change the paradigm of how the construction industry views and handles waste.
