A business with heart

Our vision is to contribute to a fully renewable planet.

Because there is no "Planet B".

Our story begins in 1992.

Ever since recycling started growing in prominence in the 80s and 90s, we’ve all known the reason why we should take part. It’s better for the environment. It’s the right thing to do.

1992

But only in recent times has it also become the cost-effective thing to do. And WasteXperts has been leading that charge for years. So, in 1992 David Lentz founded the company as AAAA Janitorial.

1997

We knew early on that with the right technology, with the right strategies, processes and resources, organizations like yours could help the environment and save money doing it. In 1997 we refocused on multifamily recycling shortly after AB 939 waste diversion mandates.

2012-2020

Now in the 21st century, that perfect intersection between environmental and budgetary conservation is finally a reality — and WasteXperts is here to make it happen. We expanded to Washington, Southern California, and Nevada.

2021

Following growing compliance needs, we began to offer the SB 1383 program for our clients.

2022 and Beyond

The need for reduced waste and improved recycling is growing across the USA. We are expanding further into Colorado, Texas and Oregon.

Our Leaf

Throughout our planet’s history, the leaf has symbolized life and regeneration.

Every leaf is an essential lifeline that adds value to each tree on our planet.

As each leaf matures, the tree matures, as the tree matures the environment renews, and at the end of a leaf’s life, the leaf falls to the ground providing nutrients to the tree and to its surrounding environment.

The leaf is essential to renewing the life of our planet.

The leaf is nature’s example of how a fully functional circular economy truly works.
