A note from our founders

The original idea for Compology was to use technology to improve the efficiency of food waste collection so that it could be as ubiquitous as household trash collection. Drawing on Ben’s experience manufacturing sneakers and Jason’s experience in construction, we set up our own food waste collection business in Westchester, NY based out of Jason’s parents’ garage. While hauling food waste, we quickly recognized that waste generators, haulers, processors & regulators all need the same data points about waste and recycling, but each stakeholder needs them for different reasons.

Compology was truly born in 2013 when we realized that by facilitating the collection and distribution of that data, we could make a huge impact on the efficiency and sustainability of the waste and recycling industry!

Over the years, leaders in the trucking, ocean shipping, and rail transportation industries have caught onto Compology’s recipe of combining rugged cameras and sensors with artificial intelligence and action-oriented analysis. It’s been an extraordinary experience to collaborate with our customers and partners to rethink Compology’s core technology as a platform, and apply it across several industrial transportation applications.

As we’ve grown from a two-man team working out of a garage into an international business supporting hundreds of customers, we’ve aimed to stay focused on the long-term welfare of the company, exercise empathy, keep things simple and encourage curiosity. We’re humbled every day to work alongside our remarkably talented team – nowhere else is there a group of people better equipped to weather the ups and downs, lefts and rights, of growing a business!

Join us on our next chapter of moving the world’s raw materials, finished goods and waste with the smallest footprint possible!

With love and respect,
Ben and Jason
