Molok is pleased to announce that May 5th, 2019 marks the company’s 20th anniversary. Since 1999 Molok North America Ltd. has brought users the benefits of cost-effective waste and recycling containment and collection, with the environmentally efficient crane-lifted semi-underground system. The Molok® system proves to be an effective solution for hundreds of thousands of users across Canada.
The FUTURE of waste collection, TODAY. Advancement in technology is changing our world. With the evolution of how we function every day with technology, it makes sense to think about how we dispose of our waste. The Molok® Deep Collection™ system is a game-changing innovation in the world of waste and recycling, keeping waste areas clean, attractive and odor free. Molok® was invented by entrepreneur Veikko Salli in Finland in 1991.
Trailblazing the Canadian market since 1999, founder Marja Hillis, Mr. Salli’s daughter, committed to sharing this innovation in North American. Initially introduced into Canada’s parks and open spaces, the advantages of the Molok® system soon became evident to the residential and commercial waste and recycling markets. In 2003, to broaden the exposure of the Molok® system, Marja’s husband Mark, who joined the company in 2002, began a Molok® dedicated collection service, initially catalyzing growth in Ontario’s Waterloo Region, but quickly spreading to nearby regions. Today, with Molok® containers in Canada from coast to coast, we are bringing the advantages of the Molok® system southward to the United States and Mexico.
Molok has earned many honors over its 20 years, being named to the Profit 500 list of fastest growing Canadian companies for 4 consecutive years. Also recognized as The Most Innovative Waste Company (New Economy 2017) and awarded the Clean Tech Award for Best Recycling and Waste Management Solutions (New Economy 2016). Founder Marja Hillis has been named Female CEO of the Year – Waste Management (Acquisition International 2018) Most Innovative CEO – Waste Management Industry (Business Worldwide 2016), has been recognized as a member of the W100 list of Canada’s top female entrepreneurs, and as the Finish/Canadian Entrepreneur of the Year by the Finish Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
“Working out of our Mount Forest, Ontario manufacturing and office facility we are easily positioned for growth.

I am humbled by it.”
