Careers With Acorn Waste Service
Here at Acorn Waste Service, we pride ourselves with sterling crew members who not only possess a wide variety of skills but are also able to work independently or with a team in a dynamic and fast-paced environment. Our exceptional crew matches our exceptional fleet of specialized collection vehicles, turning on a dime to face down daily challenges together.
We also pride ourselves with a culture that is responsive to individual needs while maintaining a friendly and professional air. The input of every team member is valued. We are able to keep the work atmosphere light and breezy because we can trust our fellow team members to step up and chip in when the unexpected happens.
Here are a few of the skills that we value at Acorn Waste Service:
Attention to Detail
As an industry leader in specialized waste collection, Acorn goes above and beyond to ensure that our properties are left cleaner than when we arrived. With that an eye for detail is an essential part of the skillset that we are looking for.
Driving and Vehicular Knowledge
Our diligent crew members need to be able to safely navigate the roads under any conditions and become familiar with the vehicles that they drive. Peak performance is required when in the field.
The ability to learn new skills on the go and implement them into a daily routine is a valuable asset.
Courteous Customer Service
Members of the Acorn team may come into contact with our customers and the local population at large. Presenting a friendly face and helpful answers to various questions is a must!

Food Waste Collection and Bin Staging
Acorn Waste Service has a top-of-the-line Food Waste Collection Program that recovers more and more food waste every day from landfills and diverts it to greener pastures. Driving a half-ton pickup equipped with a lift gate and a tow bar, our Food Waste crew starts early to stage large and small bins for collection, and then returns them later in the day.
Garbage and Recycling Collection
Our collection crew visits a variety of different property types: townhouses, mid- and high-rise condos and commercial properties. Services range from door-to-door collection to dumping bins placed in garbage rooms. We also retrieve large items left out with garbage (eg. sofa, dresser, table). We pride ourselves on courteous, timely service and working until the day is done. Whether it is by hand or using mechanical assistance, our specialized fleet of small trucks can get into small spaces and only require a G licence to drive.
We provide comprehensive training for all positions and using our culture of communication, help is never far away for new and seasoned employees alike.
