About Us

EcoHub is the only sustainable product manufacturer that provides economic development, environmental sustainability, and lower costs to cities, companies, and communities.

 

Unlike the world’s current approach to garbage handling, EcoHub repurposes 75-100% of the waste stream into value added products. Here is how EcoHub puts every material within the waste stream to its highest and best use for both local economies and the environment.
