About Us

Who we are

Expert knowledge in waste industry: Waste Focus’ team has decades of experience in the waste removal and recycling industry.

Waste Focus was formed by a group of solid waste industry professionals who saw a niche opportunity to help corporations combat escalating solid waste collection and disposal expenses by marrying together the purchasing leverage of a Group Purchasing Organization, the operational knowledge of waste industry insiders, and the advanced technology available to us today. Our staff members have spent many years involved in the waste industry in various capacities.

Collectively we have:

  •  Run waste collection and disposal companies
  •  Operated recycling companies
  •  Designed and built a transfer station
  •  Managed landfill operations


Bob Benjamin

Bob has 34 years’ experience in the waste removal industry and has served in many different positions – from landfill manager to national sales manager – with several waste and recycling companies.  Through his experiences, Bob discovered a use for his industry knowledge that served his customer’s needs, not just the hauler’s.  With this niche in mind, Waste Focus was formed.

Now in his 16th year as the founder and President of Waste Focus, Bob and his team have secured thousands of locations nationwide.  With the negotiating leverage Bob has obtained through having this large customer base, Waste Focus looks forward to continued growth in its market share of new businesses and franchises across the country.
