Atlanta-based Rubicon Global, a provider of cloud-based waste and recycling solutions, has announced that co-founder Marc Spiegel has been named to the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “40 Under 40” list for 2016.

Spiegel is a native of Louisville, Kentucky, and comes from four generations of waste and recycling hauling experience. In addition to overall strategy, Spiegel oversees the hauler/vendor management team at Rubicon Global, which helps businesses reduce operating expenses, implement recycling programs and save money by finding new ways to reduce, reuse and recycle waste.

“Marc and the Rubicon team were all concerned by the woefully under-evolved nature of waste and hauling and became inspired to build a company that would use both technology and innovative thinking to change the industry,” says Rubicon CEO Nate Morris. “Marc is a great leader and friend, and in addition to his work at Rubicon, he finds time to both mentor growing Atlanta startup companies as well as work on a social entrepreneurship program with the Weber School in Atlanta.”

Spiegel says, “My grandfather—a charter member of the National Solid Waste and Recycling Association Hall of Fame—told me, ‘Don’t be content doing things the way they’ve always been done.’”

He continues, “That always stuck with me. Nate and I were determined to use technology to bridge the gap and force the industry to find a better way to serve businesses, consumers and the environment.”

The Atlanta Business Chronicle honored the 2016 “40 Under 40” class Thursday, Nov. 3 at American Spirit Works in Atlanta.

Rubicon Global is a worldwide leader in sustainable, cloud-based waste and recycling solutions. Using its proprietary technology-enabled platform, the company provides comprehensive waste stream solutions that enable companies to reduce operating expenses and implement recycling programs.
