The Company

Sequoia was founded in 2011 as a business-to-business managed service because comparative data, financial and operational consulting, and environmental stewardship were not available in the waste and recycling market. Sequoia employs a technology rich, solutions-based approach, which saves clients money and improves their eco-friendliness – what we call a “double green”. Operationally, Sequoia deploys a toolset of mobile and web applications to best meet the customer service, billing, and operational desires for businesses of any size.
