Canada's Top Growing Companies

Canada’s Top Growing Companies 2022 ranks Canadian companies on three-year revenue growth. 505-Junk earned its spot with three-year growth of 99%. 

505-Junk’s co-founder and CEO, Barry Hartman, says: “I’m really happy for our team to be recognized for the growth that we’ve experienced over the last couple of years. Growth is actually a core value at 505-Junk, and we define it as investing in the development of our people, clients, and resources. I feel extremely grateful for the commitment of our team and the loyalty of our clients. You wouldn’t normally expect a junk removal business to be one of Canada’s fastest-growing companies, but our team has shown we can compete not just in our industry, but also on the national stage. With some major contracts and new service offerings lined up for 2023, we are expecting to grow by more than 50% next year alone. Naturally, we’ll be on a hiring spree, so come join the team!”
